DXF service

I like to use CoCreate OSD as a service to translate native MI files to DXF. Can you please get me started, point me to the documentation, samples, etc so to work in an automated way ? We are acualy on version 16.50B. Thanks.

Re: DXF service


you should look for <Program Folder of OSD 16>\dxfdwg.
In this folder is a DOS command line tool that can do just what you're looking for. If you start it from a Windows Explorer, the tool will tell you what to do. If you want to use it from a DOS window, here are the command line options:
 dxfdwg [-option] [-t] [-k] [-b batch_file] [-e config_file] [-f source [dest [log]]]

    -i   DXF  to  MI
    -o   MI   to  DXF
    -d   DWG  to  MI
    -m   MI   to  DWG
    -s   MI   to  SVG

    -v   version
    -n   name of translator
    -?   help

  Note: -b and -f are mutually exclusive.
        -t target version (only valid with options o and m)
        -k keep dest file if exists (only valid with options o and m and s)
For example, here's how to translate a dxf to mi:
K:\csn\dxfdwg\dxfdwg -i -f C:\local\KLAD.dxf C:\local\KLAD.mi
You'll probably need the option -o (which is mi to dxf).
