hey guys this is jamied and you are watching jt cad in this video tutorial we will learn how to convert a dwg file format to microstation dgn file format now we have a file which is test2d dwg which is autocad file format we'll just go ahead and open this file in autocad now as you can see that this file this is autocad file now we need to convert it to microstation dgn file format there are multiple options in here the first one we can go ahead and do file and export the easiest method is to change it to v8tgn file format and the name we will give it this is test2.twg earlier i had tried for this one now i am going to change it to test2 and i will save when i am hitting save as export as dgn settings uh this window opens uh this is the thing that is asking translate all dwg references to dgn files means any reference references that are attached in this file will be converted to dgn file format also the second option is to point all the wg references into one dgn file or ignore any dwg references external dgn references will also be handled in this the next thing that most of the users may get this error is specified seed file the seed file is actually a template file which is similar to autocad file which is in in autocad we use template files and dwt files and microstation seed files are used which are in dgn file format so in here so some of the users if you click here this space will be empty and nothing will be written here in that case you have to go here click this and specify any of the dgn file format that you have in this same with the same settings that you have in dwg file now if you don't have just message me in comments and i'll send any of the samples in dgn file if you need if you don't have any just click browse button and browse the area where you have the dgn seed file specify the seed file and open it the master units that you are used in this file are feet i'll select that and here are the standards that will be used like layer in layer 0 will be converted to dgn file zero level and all the levels will be changed in this way line type will be this name will be converted to this and line weights will be converted from here to here colors will be the color settings are different in microstation and autocad so it will not be any mapping for colors i'll just go ahead and click ok and upon this window i will export it export to a dgn file it says the export translation successful i will just open my folder where i have converted this is the file that i converted i'll open my bentley microstation and the really cat test to the one i recently converted open and you can see here all the file is converted to microstation format so this is the easiest and best method that you can use to convert your dwg files to autocad the other option that you can use to convert your autocad files to dgn is to simply go ahead to file open and if the file is not open in any other window like this file it is not right now open it is a dwg file from here you have to change to cad files and it is listing all of the dgn dwg and dxf files all will be listed here we can open a dwg file to microstation open it and then form file go to export to dgn dwg and dxs right now you can see that it is in dwg file we can change from here to microstation v8 dgn file go to options references you can check here whether you want to convert the references or no i'll say yes convert references and you can see the other settings here as well i'll hit okay and i'll name it at plan 2 dot dw that dot dgn you can see here in my folder there is no plan 2 dot d g n i will save it and now you can see here that it is over here plant two plant2.dgn is here i will open in microstation okay you can see here my dwg file is now a plant2.dgn file which is 3d vadg and to convert this microstation 3d to 2d let's go ahead to file export and at the end there is 2d just change it to learn to do i will say three and hit ahead okay here is the file open it in microstation okay you can see here it is now 2 db 8 dg and 5 on it so this is the some of the methods that you can use to convert your dwg file to dgn file format and if you want to learn how to convert a microstation file to autocad file uh there is another video that um i'll leave the link in my description or on upright just go ahead and check it it's very easy method thanks for watching and do subscribe and like and if you want to share the video with your colleagues go ahead best of luck
