Any way to circumvent this?
If not, is there a source for DGN cells of vehicles? Need a regular bus for an urban project.
Tanks for ideas,
For anybody to be able to help you, they would need to know if you want a 2D or 3D regular bus.
what happens if you xref the dwg bus into dgn and then copy thru to active dgn?
Try exploding the DWG block in acad then convert to dgn and remake as cell?
Don't have acad get Acad true view ( free download) and use it to export to DXF then import the dxf into microstation and rebuild as a cell...

Hi Ian, Thanks for answering. Yes, it's 3D, but what is this data group validator for? If it's just a one-time import... Is there not any site where you can get DGN cells of vehicles?
Data Group Validator is used by Open Building Designer to ensure that the items in a file are properly allocated with in a design file.
Generally speaking a bus is not part of any datagroup as it is not a architectural / building / mechanical / electrical / plumbing dataset.
Therefore if you place something that is not defined in a dataset it will be flagged up by the validator.
Going back to your original question in addition to the suggestions previously given I have found a 3D cell of a bus which is in the bus3D.dgn file attached.
Hope that helps
Ian, Thanks for your nice bus. It fits very well under the solar panel roof. (The bus will be solar powered and charge under the roof)
I just miss a full outer shell which has turned transparent somehow. Is there a certain layer I should turn on or change properties for? Can I turn it to a cell and then change the display style? Thanks again, Ingemar
