Iam working in archiacd 9.0,even in earlier version of archicad 8.0 and 8.1 ,they have disabled to save the layout file in autocad format,I have to work in archicad and get plotted outside since i dont have big plotters,i love plotmaker for its simplcity,but iam very disappointed that with latest version iam not able to save layout file as dwg,i have worked in version 7.0 ,there i belive this option was enabled,please let me know how to save archicad plotmaker file to dwg,give me a solution for this
Definitely not needed as we have the ability to publish individual sheets or the entire layout book as DWG files. Go to File/publish as set up a publisher set and translator. You will find this is much easier that manually saving each sheet.
I have a Layout Book with 20 Layout sheets. On each of them I have the same drawing detail (among other drawings) with different layers turned off/on. I’d like if PM publisher could be intelligent enough to export that detail as a single .dwg xref-ed into each exported .dwg layout.
