Fills (DXF/DWG Translation Setup)

Export all Fills “as is”: This option will recreate ARCHICAD fills in AutoCAD.
Export all Fills as “SOLID”: This option will convert all fill patterns to solid fills.
Export all Symbol Fills as “SOLID”: This option will convert all symbol fill patterns to solid fills.
Export Fill Backgrounds as Additional Solid Hatches: ARCHICAD fill patterns have a separate background fill; AutoCAD fills, in contrast, are all transparent between the pattern lines. If you want the exported file to look like the original ARCHICAD fill, check this option.
Note: Export Fills as “SOLID” disables this option.
Background Fill, Non-Transparent Background: When an background fill with a non-transparent color is exported, it will be exported as a solid fill whose color is that of the background (plus the border if it exists).
Background Fill, Transparent Background: no fill will be exported (only the border if it exists).
Foreground Fill: Exported as-is; background has no effect.
Vectorial Fill, Non-Transparent Background: a foreground fill with the background color is exported first; then, a pattern fill with the foreground color is exported as a Hatch entity (and the border if it exists). If the Hatch lines reach a certain level of density, then it becomes a solid.
Vectorial Fill, Transparent Background: Only the pattern fill with the foreground color is exported (and of course the border if necessary).
Symbol fill: Has no AutoCAD equivalent; the symbol pattern is generated into a Block. If it has a background in ARCHICAD, this background will become a Hatch in AutoCAD.
Gradient: Exported as solid.
Image: Exported as solid.
Use the Fill Conversion Table: Check this box to convert Fills to hatches using the Fill Conversion table. Click on the Fill-Hatch Conversion table to define correspondences.
Click New to define each new correspondence in the Edit Fill-Hatch Conversion dialog box.
Enter a Hatch Scale in which to display the converted fill.
