I am exporting my DGN Drawing models to DWG with a standard Wireframe Display Style and noticing this is the Visual Style that is set in AutoCAD. Unfortunately this does not display certain elements and I require to switch the DWG to the "2D Wireframe" Visual Style in AutoCAD.
Exporting a 2D Model successfully comes into acad with the 2D Wireframe Visual Style, however everything else comes in as the 3d variant - 3d models I can understand, but why Drawings (as they are 2D)?
Does anyone know how I can get my DGN Drawing models to export to DWG with a "2D Wireframe" Visual Style? I'm using Microstation CE U12 and OpenRoads Designer U7.

look at your workspace config and see what file is used for dwg seed, mine is set to seed.dwg and also my transeed.dgn
I believe the seed.dwg is what creates the new acad file when doing conversion from DGN to DWG... make a backup and see if you can open with acad and change the settings
do the same for the transeed.dgn with msnt .. and see if 1 you can still use mstn to open dwg as dwg and 2 see if you can save dgn as dwg...

I'm using the standard deliverted seed.dwg file and in acad it is already set with the 2D Wireframe AutoCAD Visual Style. The thing is that this is the style that is exported from a Design DGN model, but not Drawing or Sheet models.
I'll have a look at the transeed file and see what happens - I thought it was for DWG > DGN conversion?

yes it is ... just clutching at straws trying to remove all possible sources of the error..
Your not using mutimodel by any chance? Maybe thats the source....?
I have found a little difficulty with this also, mainly I think due to the drawing model being seen as a non default model in terms of the dwg export.
I use a macro to get round this, that changes the model type from drawing to model, exports the dwg and then returns the model to a drawing.
Now that would be a really useful macro ... dont suppose you could share it here?
