Export to DWG overlapping items

Hello Folks 🙂

I draw a multi-storeys building and I need to export it in dwg. When I visualize, for instance the second floor, and export it to dwg, the file I get shows all the elements underneath the selected floor I am exporting. So, while in Archicad, the floor plan is clean, in autocad, it shows the second floor overlapping the 3 floors below.

How can I do?

I managed to solve the problem! I had to select each element on each floor and in "Floor Plan Display" select "Home Story Only". In this way I have a dwg drawing clean and tidy exactly the same I visualize in Archicad. Thanks anyway a lot for the support!

Hello Stevini,

 

You have to prepare a layout with all your level plans and publish this layout with the right DWG export translator. By this way you are able to get all your level plans into the "Object" space into Autocad.

So I create one layout drawing which inclused 4 plans of my building, I save the drawing in DWG, and the result is the same as the previous one. Any wrong passage? Btw I am using Archicad 25

Yes wrong passage about dwg translator parameters. 🤗

I am editing the paramenters. I do not find any parameter which includes only the visible items. The only thing I find is visible layer but it doesn't work because the layer of the walls are the same in every floor. There isn't any straight forward and preset way to have a dwg clean as tidy as in the viewport in Archicad?

English is not my birth language, I'm not able to explain you as well as I want. Share you file and I will do it for you.

well.. thank you very much! I cannot attach .pln files here so I will attach a link to wetransfer:

Into AC you should put all your level plan views into one layout

Then add this DWG export translators into Archicad before publishing DWG :

It seems to be like this :

All your level plan views into Autocad "Object" space through one publication.

Is it what you need ?

Then you are able to change hatches, lines or pen type correspondences between Archicad and Autocad. It's possible to export windows, doors or cut hatches into associated layers too.
