If you create drawing in solidworks then do save as dwg with all the mapping options filled in this works ok.
The mapping only works upto a point. Key bits do not translate properly and printing certain objects requires considerable work.
Most of the complaints have come from my customers.
Moving a dimension often requires more work to the dim style.
It seems odd that a company who promotes the dwgeditor can't get the translation to work efficiently. I do not expect everything to go as an acad drawing but the basic editing should not be needed. Fonts/Dims/Linetype scales are a major headache.
I use to run a lisp file to correct all the mistakes but I do not have access to that anymore.
Yes I know what you mean. Just hoped you hadn't used the mapping. I find section thro lines jump all over the place, but the rest is good enough for us. When I open acad drawing normally just clicking LWT box and use colours for printing pen widths.
Sorry no help
I more or less have the same problems, and no work arounds. I have also discussed some of my issues with our var, and a couple spr's have been generated through this avenue, but overall I am still dissatisfied with the results.
The only thing I can suggest is to start / keep working with your var.
I understand this is an old thread but I've had the same experiences with v2010.
Are there any solutions or workarounds for the dimensions being wrong scale or leaders being way out of scale, etc?
