Export DWG special mode for sheets and deliverables

ArchiCAD, Sketchup and Revit have a very nice workflow for creating DWG deliverables.

Basically, the software merge all the viewports in the model like an array and then creates a viewport of each in the sheet.

They also dumb down all the smart civil/text elements and annotations.

This could be an option when exportin only sheets so we don`t end with blank models.

That also could solve many annotations, lines and other similar problems that usually happen with different scales.

Field texts could also be dropped to plain..

I can send a dwg export from one of them as an example.

But just check how Layout (trimble) exports.. Or ArchiCAD..

I feel like the dwg export from OpenRoads tries to recreate a dgn file as a dwg. But that sometimes leads to a lot of problems and incompatibilities.

A specific tool for creating deliverables, with just this focus in mind. Just get the sheet as a dwg to clients.

    Exporting to dwg already exists. If there's specific problems you're having with the results, please contact support.

    The request is for a new mode for DWG export.. Did you at least checked the references I gave?

    It's not a problem with the in built tool, it's a request for it to do something new and different..
