Convert .dwg to .bmp in AutoCAD 2013

Hi,

  I want to convert the .dwg file to .bmp in AutoCAD 2013 using interop services in API

 

I have a code to perform this in AutoCAD 2012 but that is not working fine in AutoCAD 2013. Can anyone help me in this regarding.

 

 

This is what i tried

 

AcadSelectionSet oSS = null;
short[] ftype = new short[1];
ftype[0] = 410;
object[] fdata = new object[1];
fdata[0] = "Model";
acadapp.ZoomExtents();
oSS = _acadapp.ActiveDocument.SelectionSets.Add("MySet");
oSS.Select(AcSelect.acSelectionSetAll, null, null, ftype, fdata);

acadapp.ActiveDocument.Export(OutputFileName, "BMP", oSS);

Hi all,

Finally Found Solution, the code i used is follows

 

AcadSelectionSet oSS = null;
short[] ftype = new short[1];
ftype[0] = 410;
object[] fdata = new object[1];
fdata[0] = "Model";
_acadapp.ZoomExtents();
oSS = _acadapp.ActiveDocument.SelectionSets.Add("MySet");

_acadapp.ActiveDocument.Export(OutputFileName, "BMP", oSS);

KillAcadDocuments(_acadapp);

 

 

just send the selection set as null, this is Exporting the BMP.

 

Thanks all for helping me...

Hi,

 

use the plot-functionality, that gives you more options (espcially the resolution) for the output.

Hi,

 

create a new plotter (with the new plotter-wzard) that creates raster-files (>>>details<<<)

Then search for source-code controlling plotting, e.g. >>>click<<<.

Or you can send the BMPOUT command to the commandline.
