Exporting Different Versions of DXF/DWG files
This Tech Tip explains how to export different versions of DXF/DWG files.
Changing the Versions
Settings Menu › DXF/DWG Conversion Settings
On this dialog, the target version of the DXF/DWG file can be specified.
When an AllyCAD drawing is then saved as a DXF or DXG file, the version will be as specified.
From version 3.5, AutoCAD 2004-2006 file formats will also be supported.
The reason for the different versions is that the DXF/DWG format is slightly different for each version, i.e. AutoCAD 12 cannot open a version 2000 file, but AutoCAD 2002 can open any files created in previous versions.
