How to import Autocad files to Corel with the plot properties

Is it possible to import an autocad drawing in corel with the properies
of the plot from autocad?
In more simple words to import a drawing in corel with the sizes of the
pens as they would appear in printing and not all the same as they
appear in the screen.
thanx!

Sorry, wrong attitude.
To the OP, depending on your versions, you can't do this in one step. With newer versions of CD, you will get your layers imported, and if you generally draw BYLAYER and plot by color, you can then easily select the contents of each layer and then apply an appropriate graphic style. With older versions of CD (or Essentials) you can make HPGL plot files, one per lineweight, and import them into Corel. They come in as a group to which you can apply a graphic style with the properties you want. With the latter process, remember to give yourself registration geometry for final sizing and alignment of your groups.
Hope this helps.

Thanks Michael.
btw (OT), in your 'Hillside Garden', what is the material to be used in the stone wall?
I construct Keystone and Belgard (concrete block) walls:

I'll give it a shot. I frequent Corel's own groups, but I'll add it to my list.

Uh oh.
We were supposed to be working to scale?
Whatever happened to "artistic license"?

Be prepared for a relentless barrage of messages, though--has a tendency to infringe a bit upon work-time ;-)
