We are currently working on a project where the architect is producing his loaded drawing files in ADT 3.3. These appear upon rotation
to be a mix of 3D & 2D (e.g a flat plan with 3D furniture blocks & 3D doors).
The problems start for us when we try to modify these dwg's, in that when we try to change the building outline to the appropriate colour (9)
we have to explode the walls because they are made up of ADT blocks this in turn creates an unmanageable file size (from 2Meg to 32Meg)
The other problem is that the load furniture, small power & Data/Voice dwg appears when looking at it from the side (90 degrees from the top)
to be loaded at different levels from Z 0,0.
We have suggested to the architect that he could try following the instructions within ADT 3.3 and create DXB files then resave them as dwg files,
but this appears to be difficult as the DXB is a snapshot of the DWG and not scaled at 1:1.
DXB's apart the architect has tried to send us DWGs with view proxy graphics disabled this looks as if it has solved the door problem but not the wall
problem and it has definatly not solved the loaded plan problem.
In short, does anybody have any idea how to flatten an ADT dwg to Z0 so that it can be modified 100% as a Cad dwg without creating massive unworkable
Any help would be much appreciated as we have now lost about 120 man hours messing around with dwgs that don't work.
