Export Drawing model to DWG with 2D Wireframe AutoCAD Visual Style?

Hi,

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...
