Hi, I draw and saved my project via Archicad 21 and export it to DWG. However when I looked the DWG format texts are not right. The space or types of fonts are changed. In DXF-DWG translation setup, under save options I chose paper space with cropped view's content. What can I do to fix it? :cry:

Hello mervelousss,

Do you have configured the font match into dxf/dwg translator ?
Or are you sure that autocad has access to the font used by archicad ?
Did you link the SHX file with DWG file ?

The SHX format supports various Type 1 PostScript fonts and can also be used to store fonts and small building blocks that are usually inserted in drawings.

Hi,
We have several different PCs with Archicad installed on Windows
separated licences
same versions
all updates (Archicad + Windows) up to date
pln or TW...

Problem:

After we export the same data to dwg with the same export filter - The result is different text (for example Roboto)

Example:


Picture 1 - Incorrect output

Picture 2 - Correct output

you need a couple of things:


a) a copy of the default Autocad template file called acad.dwt

b) add this to your preferred translator in the Save options (see screenshot)

c) create a font-style conversion table with one item for each font in your file (see 2nd screenshot).

The file I grabbed converts our preferred font to Arial and gets rid of the acad stick font.
