batch translation help .mi to .dwg

Hello Everyone,

We are running ME10 Rev. 10.50 at the company I work for. I am an Autocad user and would like to converter multiple .MI files to .dwg format.

I have used the translator successfully with a single file but I am a bit lost when it comes to the batch translation....(multiple files). I have done some research but have not come up with the specifics on creating a .bat file to run in the translator.

Can anyone offer me any advise or a sample .bat file to help me started creating my own? Thanks in advance.

Best regards,
Tony Reiners

This is from esupport on the CoCreate website.

How to create a batch file for batch translation on a Windows system

Problem:

How to easily create a translator batch file automatically in case you have multiple files in multiple directories.
Valid for Windows operating systems.


Solution:

Go to the Windows command prompt, then change to the drive (e.g. C: )or path from which you want to get the list of all MI-files and enter the following command:

dir *.mi /b /s > C:\temp\batch.txt

This command redirects all MI-files of the choosen drive to the file C:\temp\batch.txt.

Please note: an empty file with this filename has to be created in advance.
Of course other filenames and paths can be choosen.

sample of the content of the resulting batch-file:
C:\temp\test.mi
C:\MISC\12345.mi
C:\ProgramFiles\CoCreate\ME10\xyz.mi

Now simply run the "dxf dwg translator" in the CoCreate start menu and select batch translate, then give the name of the file.

If you are using only one directory, drop the /s switch.

Tom

Where does this converter store the converted files? I was finally able to figure out how to get the converter to not get an error, but I don't know where they went. Thanks.

Edit the file dxfdwg.con In this file you can specify the destination and source path here.

Thanks Tom.

Is anybody else noticing that AutoCAD cannot read the .dwg file that has been converted? Or is there some step I am missing or a setting that I need to double check?
