seacad.ini

N/A

Ricky,
Would it be ok for someone to email me a copy of their seacad.ini file that they
use for exporting DXF files? I am unsure of how to map the colors and linetypes
from SolidEdge to AutoCAD DXF. I am basically looking for a "Red" in SolidEdge becomes
"Red" in AutoCAD, "blue" is "blue", etc. Any example seacad.ini files would be helpful.
All I get when I export are black lines.
Thanks,
Ralph

Ralph,
I assume you know that changing the Options when saving to DXF will allow
you to create a custom .ini. When you do a save as DXF, click on the Options
button on the Save As dialog. In the Solid Edge to AutoCAD Translation
Wizard click on Next until you get to the options for mapping Solid Edge
line width to AutoCAD element colors. Uncheck the option for 'Do Width to
Color Mapping'. Save your custom .ini file. You will have to specify a
unique filename. You cannot override the default.seacad.ini file. It is best
to save the file to a location other than in the Solid Edge product folders.
This should give you color to color during translation.

Rick B.
