DXF-Export Dimensions

Postby CadFan » Sat Feb 20, 2021 5:46 am


excuse me my English is very bad. I could not be helped in the German forum.
I got a reprimand here.
I'm having trouble exporting DXF from TechDraw.
See pictures: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 58#p480058
The components look good, but the dimensions are a disaster.
What can I do?

Thanks for your help

Both FreeCAD V0.18 and V0.19 have issues here. If you export from V0.19 you can change the text override of the dimensions in you DwgCAD application. Then the correct value should be displayed.
