I was wondering if anyone new of a solution to an issue that i am experiencing?
What I would like to be able to do, and why
i would like to able to generate a dwg of a layout for issue to a consulant in the same way that we send pdfs of drawings (layouts). the idea being that when the consultant opens the dwg in autocad the only information they have is the ‘title sheet’ with drawing numbe/disclaimers etc (and that this is all visible in ‘model space’ of autocad), the notes that were on the particular layout and the details that were on the layout.
As this is something that even Revit manages to do it can’t be that hard! I guess what I want is effectively a ‘dwg’ print driver - i appreciate that techincally this isn’t really an accurate discription!
our current work around
Currently i save a copy of a rhino file then perform the following steps:
1-embed all references
2-export .3dm to a dwg
3-open dwg then delete all the layers that have now become visble as the export function doesn’t maintain the visibility settings
4-delete any other extraneous bits of the model file content so as to not confuse the consultant
5-re-save the file as a dwg
Does anyone find themselves doing someting similar?
I look forward to hearing your thoughts,
