Quick export tip & Announcement

First the announcement. I’m sure you know by now that AU registration is open. So if you’re lucky and have the opportunity to go, make sure you sign up for Fuzzy Math Essentials! It’s going to be a great class with an outstanding cast. I’m very sad about not presenting again this year, but I know it’s in very good hands.

Now for the quick tip. I have encountered a couple of cases where someone tries to export a plan view that has electrical outlets to a DWG file and the result has missing outlets. It has happened more than once and when I see that, I always think it’s more than just an isolated problem. It seems that the culprit is usually some filled region in your view, so the workaround is to get rid of the filled region and the fixtures will export just fine. This obviously is not a perfect solution but can get you past the hurdle. You can always combine the hatches from the defective DWG into the one that shows the outlets correctly. Hopefully this will get fixed in an upcoming release.

We have had similar problems were some linked electrical content would not export to DWG from RAC 2010. However, it would export from RME 2010. We use filled regions in our content for emergency fixtures. Out problem appears to be resolved in 2011.
