After converting a DWG file to DGN, the converted DWG file does not display at the correct scale, when referenced into a 2D DGN file.
Version: 08.11.09.459Area: DWG
After converting a DWG file to DGN, the DWG file does not display at the correct scale.
Ensure the units in both Master and Reference files match:
Settings>Design File>Working Units
If the units match and there is still a discrepancy in the display, check the following:
By default, all AutoCAD DWG files are 3D, therefore when you export or convert them to a MicroStation design file, they will become a 3D DGN.
When opening your 3D DWG file in Microstation V8's DWG Options box, select:
-Create 2D Models for Model Space
-Create 2D Sheets for Paper Space
The DWG will then become a 2d DGN file, and should reference into the correct location.
