|Arcv2CAD 7.0 supports all AutoCAD version output
formats from AutoCAD version 11 up to AutoCAD 2009.
AutoCAD Rel 14 Benefits
Arcv2CAD takes advantage of 2 new entity types which were
introduced into the DXF format as of AutoCAD Release 14.
(1) Boundary Hatch (BHATCH) entities.
Boundary Hatch entities are a more natural counterpart to Polygon
shapes than anything previously available in the DXF format. This
allows translation of shapefile Polygons to either a Solid Fill or
other Predefined AutoCAD Hatch Patterns. In AutoCAD, Boundary Hatch
entities are also fully associative, meaning that the Solid Fill or
Hatch Patterns do not need to be redone every time you make a
change to the outline with which it is associated.
Because Arcv2CAD does not have to triangulate
Polygons in order to produce a Solid Fill, as in prior versions of
DXF, translation is faster (200% +), and the output DXF/DWG files
are smaller (about half the size of a translation using previous
(2) Lightweight Polyline (LWPOLYLINE) entities.
Lightweight Polyline entities provide a more compact form of
transferring Polylines via DXF. The resultant DXF or DWG file will
be about half the size of a translation using previous formats.
