.dwg to dxf - where is text in Dietrichs?

Post Posted: 12.04.2013 08:40

Hi.

I got a .dwg file that I am supposed to use in a drawing. This .dwg was a bit strange because with "zoom all" in model space, the drawing was almost just a dot. I tried to erase big areas around it, in case there should be a point or small line somewhere. But with no success.

Then I printed the layout drawing to PDF, converted this to dxf, scaled it to 1:1 and saved it as .dxf. (Ark 1). I also tried to explode all and save it as another dxf (Ark 2). I also tried to save both variants as dxf 2000 variants.

The PDF and the dxf's are fine and contains the original text. But when I want to import these dxf into D-Cad 2D, then this text is not there.

I could perhaps write the text, but I am quite sure I am not allowed to change anything on the original drawing.

How to get everything with me to the Dietrichs drawing program? Or is it simply not possible?

Importing dwg into D-Cam is no problem in the actual version.

Perhaps not. But remember that I am still on version 7.3. So that .dwg import works in newer versions, is something I cannot use to anything.... Smile

I don't understand, why you convert dwg into pdf, and then into dxf?
The normal way is, to open dwg in a cad-software, and store it as dxf.

I tried to import a dxf with lines and text into D-Cad V7, and it seems, as if it is not able to read text.

There are 2 ways to get your plan finished:
Store your pdf as a picture (*.png), and import it to the plan, or
load the dwg/dxf into your acad, explode the text (perhaps multiple), until all text is converted into millions of lines, store it as dxf, and import it into d-cad.

Hi.

Oh - ok. The reason why I first made a PDF, is because the model space in the original .dwg, is very strange. Strange in that way that if I use the command zoom - all, then the actual drawing almost vanish - I can barely see it as a dot. I tried to erase the big areas around it, in case there was a point or a line somewhere. But with no success. Therefore I went to the layout, made a PDF print and converted that PDF print to dxf - in order to get somewhere at least.

Ok - I can try to explode the text. I tried to explode all items on the drawing before. What do you mean with "explode the text multiple". Do you mean that I should do it not just once, but several times?

Yes. I once tried it, and I had to explode text 5 or 6 times, until it changed into single lines.

Ok - I succeeded to import it with the text, but there are other things, that doesn't import, some circles and some hatches.

Maybe I'll have to import it as a image file and add my drawing on top of that. Not the best and most accurate - but maybe it have to be ok. I will see.
