Is there a way by 3rd party tools or Microstation itself to export or convert dgn files into adobe illustrator ai or eps files? A client which uses Microstation to make maps wants us to make the maps part of a presentation. As we dont own Microstation we dont have a clue what is possible to export or convert to and neither does our client which has Microstation. Creating PDF’s of MicroStation design files will allow you to put them on the server for all to use or e-mail to clients for thier viewing. The following information requires that you have a registered copy of Adobe Distiller. If you do, take the DGN file and create a .000 file using pscript.plt (you may also use pscriptc.plt) as your plot configuration file. Now open the .000 file in Adobe Distiller. Distiller will create a PDF from a post script file. Alternativly, use printer.plt and select Distiller as your printer. It will create the pdf directly and this technique will allow you to utilize MicroStations BatchPlot. It is preferrable to use the Distiller for create PDF’s of vector drawings such as MicroStation and AutoCAD, and to use the PDFwriter for text documents such as Word and Excel. There is also GNU Ghostscript shareware which will output almost anything using postscript as the input. See the following links for more information on this shareware: http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/ http://www.ghostscript.com/ Also, to create an eps file of a dgn, simply send the dgn for plot but use the ‘epscripc.plt’ for colour or ‘epscripm.plt’ for b/w. &gt, Is there a way by 3rd party tools or Microstation itself to export or &gt, convert dgn files into adobe illustrator ai or eps files? &lt,visa…@mediaone.net&gt, wrote: &gt,All you need to do is print your drawing by using ps650.plt or ps650c.plt &gt,for the plot driver. &gt,The output file should have .eps extension.
