Hi,
Is it possible to Export/Import DXF (not DWG) in 3D & how, and also modify the model?
Thanks,
Joseph

From the 3D window save as a DWG.

Even from 3D window the dxf file is exported as the top view.
How about importing a dxf?

DXF = LCD

Import to ArchiCAD by opening it as a library part.

Joseph has a structural program from which he can export and bring in the model to archicad as a library part.
What he can't figure out is how to export from archicad such that he can import it into his structural program.

Joseph, why don't you post what your structural program is and the file formats it can import?
