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.

    Zip file attached with 3 vba routines for design to sheet, sheet to design and drawing to design. (the original was provided by Bentley in response to an SR which I have amended to suit)

    I have written these into a series of key-strings, such as the below, to activate and associated with menu drop downs for easy access

    the routine below does a few things

    1. turns update fields off so that filed values are not lost when merging refs

    2. places a fence around all elements

    3. turns the sheet in this case, into a 2d design model,

    4. exports the dwg

    5. turns the original back to a sheet

    6. turns filed update back on. 

    expand set ms_auto_update_fields = never; place fence allfiles; POINT ABSOLUTE; macro play SheetToDesign; export dwg; point absolute; macro play DesignToSheet; expand set ms_auto_update_fields = always

    these can be expanded also, I have a series of these that will, for example, do batch dgn/dwg/pdf into folder paths set by project variable

    Of course, if microstations export tools would actually just work like they should then none of this would be required.
