Is there any way to convert many equipment & piping files in ACIS (AutoCAD solid object) in one command. I have many files in my project, I want to convert all project in ACIS format,is there solution or any option to convert all files in ACIS format. If it is possible please help me.
I am working on Auto plant v8i ss4 & AutoCAD 2012
Thanks in advance.
First, the autoplant components have to be converted to autocad solids. Then use the normal procedure to convert dwg to ACIS as you would any other autocad drawing. Please note though that the components will not be intelligent. It will only be a physical representation of the components for reference.
To create solids use the following procedure.
1. Start the autoplant model in autoplant piping.
2. Create a new layer called ACIS.
3. Set the ACIS layer to current.
4. Type in the command COPYASACIS.
5. Save the model.
Thanks for your reply,
I know how to convert in ACIS ,but i want to convert number of files(e.g.20 equipment in different cad files) to ACIS .Is it possible ?
Do you have any AutoCAD script tools? There are many utilities (i.e. multi-batch) that will allow you to run scripts on multiple dwgs at once.
I suppose this will work Shrinivas.
After creating the ACIS, Try the Autocad Menu: File > Export…. And change the file type.
Thanks for your reply.
I have not any Autocad Script tools.please suggest me.
