Exporting surface image to dwg


Hi everyone!

I've come across an issue regarding exporting the surface image I am using in a fill when trying to export an elevation to dwg. The images don't appear in the export folder together with the dwg file.

Does anyone have an idea on how to do it? See below the settings I have!

Thank you!!

Thank you very much for the question!


Unfortunately, at the moment we do not support surface textures in DWG exports unfortunately. Thus, I suggest using color fill instead before exporting to DWG. We already had a wish recorded for it already. 


I hope this answers your questions. Feel free to ask me if you have any further issues!

Best regards,

You are kidding, we made few thousand of m2, and now what ?. We had to change texture fills to colors...really, I don't belive !.

Just realized this!!!!!!!

Had to change all my section and elevation settings in several hotlinks.
