How to verify the presence of Acad Export Scheme?


Is there a straightforward way to find all available Export Schemes for dxf/dwg?
It seems no longer stored in the registry, or I’m searching in the wrong place.


I seem to recall reading here that R6 doesn’t use the registry any more, but instead stores the info in app data. Not at the Rhino machine right now so can’t check or confirm actual location.

Hi @Willem,

All settings and preference, in Rhino 6, are stored in XML files found here:


Note, only non-default values are stored.

Does this help?

Thanks, Dale!
I think I’ll manage from here.


Hi @dale

Reviving this topic as I only now came to implementing the check.
I found that the acadschemes are not stored in the settings files in


after some digging I found they are stored in the plugin folder

%AppData%\McNeel\Rhinoceros\6.0\Plug-ins\AutoCAD file export  export_ACAD (39a88493-9e97-4f15-bd62-ad25896a2632)\settings

Wanted to let this know for future visitors looking for the settings.
