Converting DWG files to IFC, IGES, IGS errors
archivist posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralHello, 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
