DXF issue, export circles in latest 3dr Version: 2021.1.5.39466

Post by npara »

Hi,

After updating to Version: 2021.1.5.39466 there appears to be a change in export dxf behaviour. Circles are importing into AutoCAD as 3d polylines (with 360 vertices) where as a month ago, they were imported as circles. Maybe not related to version issue, but if not I'm at a loss to understand the change?

*just checked with simple lines and they are importing as 3d polylines as well. Really strange.

Thanks,
Yannick_Cyclone3DR

Hello Nelson,

We've been testing multiple of previous verions of 3DR since we read your message and the behavior that you're describing has been unchanged since the first release of Cyclone 3DR in Nov 2019: Circle > Export to DXF > Import in Autocad as a polyline.

Nevertheless, I also tested this workflow: Circle > Send to Autocad. In that case, I'm confirming you that the imported object in Autocad is a circle. I'm wondering whether you confused both approches Export to DXF and Send to Autocad, just a thought.

Could you please try with Send to feature ? Thanks a lot.

Yannick

Hi Yannick,

Thanks for your reply. I can’t send to AutoCAD because we use AutoCAD lt. last month I drew circles in a similar file, exported to dxf, opened in AcadLT. The entities came in as circles. Now, if I export from either the new or older file they all import as 3D poly lines. I could send you the old versus new dxf but it’s really confusing, since there is no difference or options when exporting?
