How to export a DXF
DXF Files can be exported from the Tygron Platform directly to be used as a base in an AutoCAD Drawing. Exporting from Tygron directly instead of starting from scratch in AutoCAD will give the user the following benefits:
- Objects like Buildings and roads will be exported to the DXF file so that the user has a context of his surroundings in AutoCAD.
- The DXF file is Geo Geo-referenced to the project CRS.
- AutoCAD layers are automatically generated based on the Geo Plugin used in Tygron so that when importing the design back to Tygron, the layers will match the Tygron Functions, and the AutoCAD design is shown directly in 3D and its properties can be used for calculations in Tygron.
The video below explains how this works.
- Make sure that a Geo Plugin is present in your project. To learn more about Geo Plugins check out the Geo Plugin page.
- Select "Export AutoCAD DXF reference" from the Geo Plugins drop down menu.
- In the export dialog leave the two default attributes as is but make sure that you select a valid CRS for the area you will be working in.
- Choose the right Geo Plugin from the drop down list. This will be used to generate the DXF layers when exporting.
- Click on "Export file" when you are ready. A DXF file will be generated based on the Geo Plugin links.
- You can now open the DXF and start designing in AutoCAD.
