Vectorworks and DXF or DWG export

Postby naomicc » Sun Mar 15, 2009 12:55 pm


I am having terrible trouble exporting from Vectorworks 2008 to DXF or DWG file. The files are for laser cutting so the scale is 1:1. The files export and appear to write just fine, but when I open them in AutoCAD only a few tiny dots appear and if I open them in Illustrator, irrespective of the scaling option I select (I have tried them all!) the drawing is tiny: I have to zoom 6400% to see it...

Is there anyone out there who has struggled with the dxf/dwg export issue and may have some guidance?

I am Mac based, OS X, with the educational version of vectorworks software.

Many thanks,
