exporting idw to autocad problem

100 Views, 2 Replies

Does anyone else do this? When I do a "save as" and save as a .dwg, when I open the dwg file in autocad 2000 or 2000i, I lose all of the hatching from section views. I can't find an option anywhere that would fix this. Has anyone else had this problem? If so, did you find a workaround?

Thanks,
Erik

Hatching will only export to PSPACE. So if you want hatching, you have to
export to either PSPACE or PSPACE & MSPACE.

Am I on the right track?

I went through the options for exporting to .dwg and made sure that I was exporting to both the paper space and model space but still no hatching :smileysad: This worked in version 5.3 but I guess I shouldn't be surprised it doesn't work in R6. Ah well, if anyone else has this problem, please tell me how to fix it.

Thanks again,
Erik
