I Have a file with:
The desired resulting dwg-file should be:
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?
Regarding the settings in the save as DWG dialog you can reference the following articles:
In my opinion this is a fault of MicroStation Connect Edition.
A few months ago I did some tests and compared the export settings between MicroStation SS4 and MicroStation CE U9.
With Connect Edition it is not possible to store a Drawing Model and Sheet Model in one dwg file.
I created a SR 7000783385 to this issue in May this year and the last response from Bentley is form Juli. It's still open.
Please can you post the settings that you used in V8i so we can make a comparison.
In the meantime does setting 'Non-Default Design Models' to 'Create Paper Space' help?
The settings I used are the ones Rodney Austin mentioned above (see screenshot in his post).
This "non default model" setting seems to help, since this results in 1 file with both models (however the sheet is the default model in my file, any way to redefine which is the default model?).

OpenBuildings Designer Connect Edition Update 8 -version 10.08.00.44
In V8i the setting 'Non-Default Design Models' is set to 'Create Separate Filees'.
But despite this setting after the conversion the DWG file structure is exactly the same as in DGN.
But the issue with CONNECT Edition is that it treats a Drawing Model as a Non-Default Design Model.
You may want to consider (re)posting this question on the MicroStation forum if you're finding that the results are identical outside of AECOsim.
Hope you got sorted back in 2018!
The only way I find to get paperspace and model space in autoCAD is to reference the DGN into itself in SHEET model. It seems a convoluted way of working but MicroStation is a convoluted pile of junk.
