Archicad => AutoCad Export problem

Virtuoz
Participant

Is there to export DWG from Layout (where floor plan drawings are linked) as you would export from floor plan directly.

I need convert objects to blocks option to be active and i can only achieve it when i export directly from floor plan not from layout.

Any solutions?

My regards to support team.

That is probably because in the layouts, they are no longer objects they are drawings.

So you will just be exporting lines and fills and annotation from the layouts.

So there is no function to export layout drawings as smart objects (like exporting from floor plan) ? 

Not that I know of.

As I said, that is not the model in layouts, they are drawings - essentially just lines and fills.

You can't get objects from lines and fills.

 

To keep objects as blocks, you have to export from the model.
