Problems when exporting from LO 2024 to DWG

I have problems when exporting from LO 2024 to DWG, where a line appears on the drawing and it also exports layers that I have turned off (rebar layer), I attach an autocad image and LO 2024 file.

Yes, it doesn’t work well on latest version. You may try to use an older version of Layout with better results.

In Layout, try unchecking the “Background” tick box for the Style SLV and then export again.

Yes I have had to use the 2020 version, thank you

I’ll try your recommendation later, thanks.

For me, one of the biggest problems exporting from SketchUp or Layout to DWG is having absolutely no idea what the recipient is really getting, or how what I send them actually looks when they get it and open it up there end.

So I was interested to read on another thread earlier about the freely available Autodesk DWG Trueview Tool which I have now downloaded.

It’s really interesting to be able to see what your DWG export from SketchUp and Layout actually looks like in Autodesk. After playing around for a bit I think I prefer what SketchUp exports to what Layout exports although I will experiment a lot more in the coming days.

In most cases, I think, the “export for SketchUp” option in the DWG export settings produces the output that best matches the needs of the recipients of the DWG, but unfortunately it exports to page scale and lacks the option to scale the output back up to full scale so you need to scale it in CAD afterwards. I made this FR some years ago.
