Contours all wacked out in autocad

Post by Guest » Sat Nov 22, 2003 7:24 am

Why are contours in microsurvey going to zero when converted to an autocad drawing (2000). Engineer called me with this problem on the last couple drawings I have sent to him. I am also getting plotting problems when using paper space on large drawings , leave out entities when plotted, I am using win xp , Thanks for the help.
When a new version coming out ?

Try saving the job to an AutoCAD R12 DWG file to get past the contour issue you are running into. The newer versions of AutoCAD can read it in just fine.

This may also solve any paper space issues you are seeing.

The next version is being worked on right now. I do not have a target release date as yet.
