Batch Drawing Converter

Autodesk, Inc. (Freeware)

Autodesk® Batch Drawing Converter is a free application which is easy to use for converting any AutoCAD® drawing file to AutoCAD® Release 14. It also converts the AutoCAD® drawing file to AutoCAD® 2004, AutoCAD® 20002, AutoCAD® 200i, and even AutoCAD® 2000 file formats. This program allows pen widths to be converted into lineweights. It also has a programmed system for page setups.

Batch Drawing Converter converts drawing files effectively. Although it does not automatically load and convert external references attached to the converted files, the user can save the drawing list using .bcl extension. The user can also add file names to converted files. This program restricts the user from opening any converted file using other computer programs while the file is being processed through and by Batch Drawing Converter.  To view the converted files, the user should restore a preview then open and save the drawing in AutoCAD. Batch Drawing Converter disregards the previews of drawings it converted. The program does not allow batch conversion for DWG files that are password-protected. It supports the following programs:
• Autodesk® Building Systems 2004
• Autodesk Map™ 2004
• Autodesk® Mechanical Desktop® 2004
• AutoCAD® 2004
• Autodesk® Land Desktop 2004
• AutoCAD LT® 2004
• Autodesk® Architectural Desktop 2004
