I've figured out how to export one cross section to a DWG but the export process took 3 minutes and 10 seconds.
I have 190 cross sections that need to be converted to DWG but I don't really have 10 hours to do this.
I also don't really want to open each model and change visible edges to cached manually.
Is there a quicker way of doing this?
Can my cross sections be arrayed into one model so that cached visible edges can be applied to all 190 at the same time?
Is this ORD ? how have you created the cross sections ? Have you used the tools in Update 2 ?

Sorry, yes I'm using ORD U2 and I have created the cross sections but if necessary I can create them again.
Just curious, when you say "used the tools in Update 2", what do you mean?
I am running into the need for this on multiple projects now (exporting cross sections to a single model or SS4 dgn file). Can this functionality be added in Update 3? Ideally, one could do a static export of the cross sections into a single model. We have subs working in SS2/SS4 that cannot use the design cross sections done in OpenRoads Update 2.
There are a couple of keyins you can use to save some time - maybe with a vba macro or the batch processor.
"reference visibleedges allattachments cached" - change all references visible edges to cached
"reference merge all" - merges all references to master
Hope that helps!
