Items which cannot export to DXF/DWG or DWF

Certain Vectorworks items have no equivalent in DXF/DWG or DWF and therefore cannot be exported. Other items could be exported, but inadequate support in AutoCAD makes it inadvisable to do so.

Non-exportable items



Image props

Individual layer scales

EPS or vector PICTs in some cases

“Graying” of layers and classes

Depending on the export options, either layers or classes

Design layers with perspective views

Oblique cavalier and oblique cabinet projections

Object names attached to arbitrary objects

Layer transfer modes other than Paint

Renderworks background images

Record format information attached to arbitrary objects
