I’m trying for the first time to export DXF/DWG files from a Layout file for AutoCad 2013. I am opening these files, to check on the exports fidelity, in SketchUp 2017 because that is what I have but I need to send them on to someone who works in AutoCad. I have both imported elements (viewports) from SKUP and vector lines, shapes, dimensions, and text that I drew/placed in Layout. I am, I think, checking the appropriate boxes/radio signals in the Options sections of the export process. Upon importing the DWG/DXF file into SKUP the only lines I have were the ones that had originally been made in SKUP (the viewports) and imported into LayOut. I have made a test file in LayOut that contained only shapes, lines, etc. made in Layout. This test file exported as a DXF/DWG file opens but in SKUP but it sure does seem like nothing is there.
The screen shot is of what I have in LayOut on the left and all that I am hoping to export vs. what opens in SKUP on the right.
As this blog post states I am supposed to “Get Phenomenal DWG Files From LayOut 2017”
I very well maybe missing a simple step in the process but what might that be?
Any thoughts? Thanks for your help and time!
