Hi all,

I have set up my export layers to include a layer called ' Wall Fin '. This layer will allocate all 'Finish[4]' parts of a wall.

I have done this to allow users of the autocad drawing to freeze the finishes layer.

All was working fine. Now for some reason the export function ignores that layer map and lumps the entire wall (structure and finish) into the one layer effectively removing the option to freeze the finish layer while in autocad.

What would be causing this to happen given I have a specific designation for the
finish[4] part of the wall in my export layer setting?

Hi Mr Spot, I am exporting a drawing sheet with a number of views on them. I have used view templates that I have customised for each view. Within these templates the ' Override Host Layers ' is not checked. Where does this leave me? cadjockey

OK, Did some testing. I adjusted my view templates to include 'Host Override' settings. When my view is set to medium or fine and all the components of eg. a wall are shown ie. 'structure', ' finish' etc. this wall will show the respective pen weights and colours as per my override settings. Exporting this view using a layer map which accounts for the components of that wall ie. structure and finish layer, the autocad drawing now has these components on separate layers. I can now freeze the finish layer and leave the structure layer visible. cadjockey Post edited on 2006-02-15 22:12:25
