3d dgn 7 to 3d dgn8

3d dgn 7 to 3d dgn8

3d dgn 7 to 3d dgn8

Is there any way how i can convert my dgn8 file into dgn7 format so that my 3d object is still 3d?
When i convert my solid 3d objects into dgn7 format they are all 3d polylines and no surfaces. Doesnt happen in all the models.

RE: 3d dgn 7 to 3d dgn8

I don't have V8 but I've seen demos.
And I believe I've seen an option where you can dictate to convert 3D objects to solids or surface ...
Not sure ... but you could double check the options.
I know V8 has more options than before so it is possible to miss a window or two.
later guy.

RE: 3d dgn 7 to 3d dgn8

Ok, now i have manage to get the 3d dwg correct into v8,
But now the MS doesnt want to convert them into version 7?
Any ideas how can i do it or did i made something wrong?
I cant find anything in the manuals to convert from  v8 to 7.

RE: 3d dgn 7 to 3d dgn8

Just a shot at the obvious ...
Did ya' try "File>saveas"?
It should give you serval options under the filter pulldown for file type ...

RE: 3d dgn 7 to 3d dgn8

When i do it in single objects the save as works fine but this is in batch convert. Then it doesnt work.

RE: 3d dgn 7 to 3d dgn8

Unfortunately I don't have V8 so I'm not aware of a "batch" routine for converting. Is this a native command in V8 or is this something you bought in "addition" to V8?
Have you tried to log onto the Bentley Newsgroup?
Sometimes the Bentley Programmers log on!!!!
I believe you need to do some configuring with your email options but I hear it's pretty good.
I went a Bently Seminar in Exton PA (headquaters)
And they advised to go there for help ....
If you get a solution ... write back and let the rest know.

RE: 3d dgn 7 to 3d dgn8

Did you ever get this to work. We have done this before without incident. Let me know if you are still having problems and I will see if I can help.
