When I export to AutoCAD Arch 2011 the element overrides show up on a color I didn't specify. Sometimes when I export the same thing again, with the same settings I get some other random color. Here are the facts.
You would think the RGB numbers you specify in Revit would export to the same RGB numbers in AutoCAD Arch but that does't seem to be the case with element overrides.
Here's a link that may help:
Exporting to DWG
Thanks for posting,
Thanks for the link. I've read this before but there is no answer. I tried it in version 2013 but color overrides react the same way. The RGB color is not maintained.
I found a few ongoing internal cases similar to the issue you are seeing. It looks like the underlying cause is display related. However, all are ongoing and no real information is available on when we can expect to see the functionality changed. I'm not sure I can offer anything at this point except to ask if you can export in a different fashion, or do some form of a batch correction in AutoCAD.
Thanks for looking into this. It's nice to at least know that there is awareness about the issue. Perhaps having the overrides export to a different layer and using the Layer Translator in AutoCAD might be the solution.
Thanks for the additional information. If you like I’d suggest leaving feedback at the below link. Information gathered is used to improve the application.
