Exporting zones to DWG

Anonymous

When exporting a drawing containing zones of different categories to DWG the colours are completely messed up – most of them grey so I can’t even distinguish them. Does anyone know why this happens?

.dwg format has never heard of Zones. So want do you want to achieve? If you export the fill to dwg it will not do any good since Autocad measures area by boundary or polyline and it has no connection with the text of the on the screen.

I export zones only as stamps without the fills.

I'm doing a feasibility study for an office building . I don't want to measure the areas in AutoCAD (since I already measured them in ArchiCAD). I just want the appearance of the exported drawing to resemble the appearance in ArchiCAD (so that I can send it out to the client or consultants). I have different zone colours for the offices that belong to different departments of the company that is going to use the office building. The colours all completely messed up, most of them turned to the same gray colour so I can not distinguish different deparments any more.

You could change the Zone stamp colours for different zones and skip the fills.

Sorry, no better ideas!
