Developing Applications for DWGFiles


 Application Data and DWG

Detailed Description

For MicroStation V8 the DGN file format has been expanded to include essentially all of the graphic entities, objects and other concepts of AutoCAD's DWG files. When a DWG file is opened in MicroStation, the DWG entities are converted to equivalent DGN elements. Because the DGN format is a superset of DWG, there are no losses resulting from concept misalignment and this process can be thought of as more of a reformatting than a translation.
