Export a File Exporting Files

CAD drawings can be exported as AutoCAD, MicroStation and Drawing Web Format files.

AutoCAD and MicroStation files can be exported using a Conversion File.

To export a file.

  1. Select either File/Export or the Export button from the toolbar.
  2. In the Export File dialog box select the folder to where the file is to be exported to.
  3. Select the type of file to be exported i.e. AutoCAD, MicroStation or Drawing Web Format from the Files of type list.
  4. Enter the name of the file in the File name box.
  5. When exporting an AutoCAD or DGN file, select from the Conversion list a conversion file to be used when exporting or select None from the list if no conversion file is to be used.
    If you wish to edit an existing conversion file or create a new one, select Configure.

    NOTE: A conversion file is not applicable for exporting a Drawing Web Format (DWF) file. It is therefore not available when this export format is selected.
  6. Save to export the file and close the dialog box. Alternatively, select Close to shut down the dialog box without importing a file.
