export to dwg - some help with the settings

I Have a file with:

  • Drawing Model: with external references attached;
  • Sheet Model: with the internal Drawing model attached, as well as soms external references.

The desired resulting dwg-file should be:

  • model space: the Drawing model with all references merged;
  • paper space: all external references merged, but the Drawing Model still a reference.

That way I have a file with no external references, but keeping the internal references as references.

I have done this before, but seem to struggle to do this again, any help on the dwg-export settings?

  • Hi Stefan,

    These settings work for us. We typically merge the attachments when sharing DWG format but you could change the 'Merge' settings in the attachments if you want to keep these as separate files.

    The key to keep the ACAD 'model space' and 'paper space' conventions in the converted file is the 'Retained' setting for  'Masked Attachments'

    Hope this helps you
