So we decided that we will show you how OrthoGraph export files work in different CAD software. At this time, we would like to write about the Vectorworks compatibility. We have tested the OrthoGraph export files in Vectorworks 2015 software both with the DXF and with the IFC export files.
Please watch our short video about the OrthoGraph- Vectorworks compatibility and see it with your own eyes how simple and accurate it is:
DXF exportOrthoGraph's DXF export is a two dimensional export format. To use this, you don't have to do anything else but export your OrthoGraph project in DXF either with the "Upload to Dropbox" tool or with the "Send by email" tool.
You can choose from single and separate layers. Separate layers means that every location and measurement will be on a separate layer. If you chose single layer then everything will be on one layer.
In Vectorworks, you can click on File/Import/ DXF import and simply open the file. After that, we recommend to click on View/Zoom/ Fit to page area in order to see the model well.
This steps will result a fully measured and accurate 2D floor plan.
IFC exportOrthoGraph's IFC format is a 3D format. To use this, you don't have to do anything else but export your OrthoGraph project in IFC either with the "Upload to Dropbox" tool or with the "Send by email" tool.
There are also the same steps in Vectorworks. Simply select File/Import/ IFC import and open your IFC file. In View menu select Layer Options/ and allow "Show others".
With these settings, you will be able to see the full 3D model.
