Export DXF

Post Posted: 29.08.2012 02:01

I have a drawing in D-Cad2D in feet and inches. I need to export the file DXF for the recipient. After I export the file, I import the dxf file in VectorWorks to verify the information. All dimensions come in inches (example 136.25) I need to show dimensions in feet and inches and see just what I see In my D-Cad2D file. The only solution I have found is to delete all the dimensions and re-dimension the whole drawing and export dxf from my cad program VectorWorks. Which is no fun time-consuming and could lead to many errors. Please advise.

I am not very used in feet-inch but as far as I know our dimension lines for feet-inch are very special and cannot be transfered to DXF.

Sorry to say, not being able to transfer DXF in feet and inches is not a good thing.

As far as I know, dxf is not able to transfer any measure unit. It only knows absolute values, and the result must be interpreted by the reading cad.

This is my information too and additionaly our feet-inch values are very special and cannot be shown in other cad programs.

Now what? I 've exported dxf drawings before and didn't have this problem using the exact same procedures based on my first post. Now I have a problem! Please advise.

Thanks!

Did you export feet-inch dimension lines before and it did work?
Or did you export inch dimension lines before?

Re: Export DXF

I export to DXFs quite a bit, and, have found that exporting "dimensions" can be problematic. When I export a DXF into AutoCAD, for example, it will follow the base units of the entire drawing file. This is normally through 1-06-1 or similar in D-CAM or "roof areas" and things like that in the roof module. I then will "match properties" to a normal feet-in dim style in AutoCAD that I have already set up, and, the units normally convert / follow along.

My recollection is DXFs do not include "units" as part of the data saved in the file, just locations/coordinates of each element. I looked briefly at a few DXF files I have, and, could not find an entry that was associated with scale. (DXFs are text files, so you can view / edit them manually...)
