Import and export interface for CAD files

Extended data exchange with CAD systems

Import of DXF and DWG files

With the extended CAD import available from version EB 5.1 on, files in the DXF and DWG formats can be imported from AutoCAD 2000 through 2007. Single files can be imported as well as complete folders and folder structures. This facilitates the data import especially with large data volumes. The user can adapt the scale, colors and layers by means of options. Blocks are stored as Visio shapes with attributes and can thus easily be further processed with Visio commands.

With the DXF and DWG export available from version EB 5.1 on, sheets can be exported as files in the AutoCAD formats 2000 through 2007. Single files can be exported as well as complete drawings, folders or projects. EB shapes are stored as blocks with attributes, and line patterns are realized graphically. Drawings can thus easily be further processed using CAD programs.
