I am currently trying to export my cross sections from open roads designer to DWG auto cad format.
However no matter what setting I try on my export the DWG files seem to contain the 3D model (as shown) I have tried disabling 3D settings within the References Tab within the export utility with no luck.
Thanks in advance!
Make sure this setting is enabled in your DWG export options.

Hi Mark, I did try this, then nothing appears, only annotations (data bands, levels etc) Thanks for the response!
with attachments set to merge?
Hi Mark, Yes unfortunately! Not sure why that didn't work
Hello, I tried this and it did seems to work. I exported my DGN to DWG and toggled on the Merge Visible Edges and did get a DWG file with sheet models that had 2D graphics (i.e. Visible Edges) of the cross sections. I created my Sheet Models at drawing scale rather than sheeting to 1:1 paper scale and received 2D "to scale" graphics of my OpenRoads cross sections. So our general practice is to scale the sheet to match the to-scale graphic plan, profile or cross sections. Rather than "Reference Scale" the "to-scale" graphic drawing to match a 1:1 paper size. This also helps when we enable our Geolocated plan sheet plots
This will be very useful for delivering graphics to downstream users where the 3D sliced reference is not something they will be able to read or use. Sometimes just having the visible 2D edges is exactly what we need. Thanks.
