I have been sent a few trial drawings in Microstation format, I dont have
any Microstation software, only AutoCAD 2002 to open them with. The client
wishes to send 500+ drawings once I am happy I can convert them from
Microstation, into AutoCAD so I can use them in my designs. I cant therefore
open the Microstation drawings in order to save them into DXF! hence the
conversion software required.
I would ask them to convert them bvefore sending them.
They can do this by a batch program.
If they are using MSV7.*
save the following onto your desktop into a txt file.
MSBATCH DWGIN INPUT:C:\[path to dgn files]\*.DWG OUTDGN:C:\[path to dgn
(ps the msbatch line needs to be all on one line.)
Now change file name to dgn2dwg.bat ie changing the extension.
When you double click on the file it will change all files in the dgn
directory into dwg files into the output directory.
If they are using V8 then they can use the Batch Converter from inside MS.
