I haven't seen any, ever. I don't think there is one.

| Archicad 4.55 - 27

Be aware that a review of the resulting .dwg file is most likely necessary.  We use the linked method above that is built in to ArchiCAD to get the .dwg file, but also post-process the results.

Post processing is done with .lsp and generates this report.  The things we scrub are based on what we hear from our consultants using the .dwg files.  A report of the results is generated and similar to this:

 

;;;	number of WIPEOUTs found and erased.
;;;	number of WIPEOUTs remaining in the drawing.
;;;	number of entities in the drawing after each of these cleaning operations:
;;;		- OVERKILL
;;;		- JOIN plines on layer "A-FOUNDATION"
;;;		- ERASE solid hatch patterns.
;;;		- ERASE point entities.
;;;		- CHANGE entities on layer "0" to layer "0-ArchiCAD".
;;;		- Set DRAWORDER for layers "a-wall-extr", "a-wall-demise", "a-wall-corridor", and "a-wall-intr" to front.
;;;		- FREEZE / THAW layer "a-zone-otln".
;;;

;;; Files cleaned by this script:
