Have you tried AECOBJEXPLODE before trying to save as DXF?

 

"Unknown command "AECOBJEXPLODE". Press F1 for help."

Can you post the .dwg file?

 

I could email it to you if I had an email address for you. If that's any good?

Perhaps that is what the architect should have used before sending the drawing :shock:

OK thanks for your help.

Here goes: dropbox file

I have another drawing but I am unable to save it as a 2000 version without the aforementioned error message popping up!

The package I am trying to install the R12 dxf version on is PocketGIS (just in case you are interested!

 

Thanks for your time it is greatly appreciated.

When I tried to open that file, it pops up the shx dialog box because geocomp.shx wasn't on my system. If I hit cancel, it opens the drawing. If I create the dxf at this point, I get the same error message you reported in your original post.

 

You will need to go here: http://www.geocomp.com.au/support/ and download that geocomp.shx shape file. Put it in your Autocad fonts folder, then create your dxf file. Should solve your problem. Worked on my system.

 

Zipped file attached.

Paste the link into the "open" dialog box in autocad, it will work that way.

When you get to the geocomp page in my previous post this is the link you'll need to get the download:

When I try to open this one, it says "drawing file not valid". Which version of Autocad are you using? I'm on 2010.

 

edit--Trueview won't open this one either. Something wrong with the file.

The last doesn't open for me on 2000i.

 

Tell the architect sending the files to learn how to etransmit or to send you the files as DXF.

hmmm....maybe my machine was mad because I was making it work on saturday. I'll try again when I get back home. In the mean time, if you're getting the same messages, or the same type of messages, you'll have to find the missing shape/font/whatever.
