In attempting to convert a few hundred DGN files to DWG, the batch converter works well except on some of the files where it gives me a message of "No Models Selected".
If I open one of the problem DGN Files and "Save As" DWG it works fine and generated the AutoCAD version.
The batch process log file shows me the following message:
---- All models in file D:\IDP Transfer - Victoria\VICTORIA\TYPE 21\VP8932.dgn were eliminated by the Filter criteria ----
but I don't have any filtering applied (see screenshot).
Would you be able to provide the software and version you're currently using?

Would you also be able to provide a batch process log as well.

This is the log output for one of the files which doesn't convert:

Also, when I look at the models in the files I see a difference between the files that work and the ones that give the "No Models Selected" message and don't convert:
1) File that works
2) File that gives "No Models Selected"
Following up on this... I'm really surprised that I can't find any information on this issue.
I'm still having this issue... not sure if you're able to assist or not.
Just a quick guess, without testing it: Have you checked the "advanced" area in the General-Tab of the DWG save options? There is one point handling "non-default design models". This can be set to three different options and maybe it is set to "ignore if not merged". And as your files which work have a "Default"-Model and your non working files do not have a default, it could be that this is the "filter" MicroStation is doing???
