EGS2DXF Path Conversion

This web page describes how ADS Mode effects path width conversion from EGS to DXF.

A client reported that paths with width in the EGS file were converted to 0 width closed plines instead of pline with matching width. The EGS file looked like this:
        ADD L62 :W0.0100 4.7415,0.3090 4.6505,0.4000 4.5750,0.4000 4.3625,0.6125 
                  4.3625,0.6500 4.3375,0.6750 4.2500,0.6750 4.1990,0.7230; 

Solution

In the EGS2DXF software, go to File pull down menu, select the Preference option, and turn ON the ADS mode.
Run the EGS2DXF translator again and you will get plines with width.
