Hello, I am an architectural archivist - not an architect. I am trying to convert dwg files to IFC. I just export to IFC in AutoCAD 2012. It then creates an IFC file and a log file. The IFC file then doesn't open in AutoCAD. Why is this? Also, this is what the log file says and I'd like to know what this means: [DefaultDomain: ]EXPORT STARTED: 2/17/2014 2:50:27 PM [DefaultDomain: ] ============= Object Count: ============= - AcDbBlockReference : Total: (287) Fail: (287) - AcDbRay : Total: (2) Fail: (2) - AcDbSolid : Total: (4) ** = Object classified as other IFC object. [DefaultDomain: ]EXPORT ENDED: 2/17/2014 2:50:30 PM In addition, under Export, if I select Other Formats, and try to export to IGES or IGS, nothing happens. Why is this? and what is the difference between the two files? Thanks for your help, I am only trying to preserve some architectural history
GabeReal posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralHello everyone, this is my first post here so hopefully it makes sense. I am trying to find a way to create an index drawing without having to input much information in. I would like to export the attributes from each drawing file in my (project folder) from the title-blocks (drawing numbers and descriptions) into excel and then be able to just datalink that into my Index table in AutoCAD. I know i could put the info in excel and import it into my table in CAD but i am looking for something more Automatic, so that everytime i need to create an index it will automatically extract the info from the drawing files title-blocks. Thanks
Hi, I'm fairly new to AutoCad and I am trying to export a plan from Corel Draw X4 into AutoCad 2007. I export the Corel as a DWG which successfully opens in AutoCad. The only problem is that all the line weights and line styles from Corel have gone. Is there a way to do this which keeps the line styles or would I be better off exporting the various parts of the drawing as individual DWG files for reassembly in AutoCad? Thanks in advance! Amir
