ARCHICAD to DWG, object to block is not working


Hello. I have some problems in translators. I'm now doing teamwork in Archicad.


Even i changed all options in the translators,(save options) object to cad block is not working.

All objects turn into lines, not blocks......

Instead, whole drawing changes in to one block, and when i explode it, it changes in to lines. ;(

Do i have to do something with custom layers??

Hello there!

I'm currently facing a similar issue. We established the a DWG translator setup several years ago, and it consistently met our expectations. However, after upgrading from ArchiCAD 26 to ArchiCAD 27, it no longer converts ArchiCAD's elements into blocks as it used to. Instead, it transforms the elements into lines.

Hi all,


I found that bug is solved & Archicad objects are converted into Autocad blocks when i installed the last hotfix (Archicad 27 - 4060).
