SVG2DWG

Do you have a question you want to ask an existing QCAD user about QCAD and what you can do with it? Do you want to know if a particular feature exists? This is the place to ask.

SVG2DWG

Postby bens » Wed Jun 22, 2016 10:54 pm

Hi, I'm new to QCAD but liking what I've seen so far and the following question is the deal breaker for me:

I'm trying to use the terminal to convert an svg to a dwg with the following command:

/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/Resources/svg2dwg -t DWG R27 Downloads/eas22.svg

but I'm getting these errors:

Warning: RScriptHandlerEcma::eval: script engine exception: "Error: :-1:-1: Wrong number/types of arguments for RDocumentInterface.exportFile().\n<native>(undefined, 'DWG') at -1\nmain() at :scripts/Pro/Tools/Svg2Dwg/Svg2Dwg.js:70\n<global>() at :scripts/Pro/Tools/Svg2Dwg/Svg2Dwg.js:78"
Warning: "main() at :scripts/Pro/Tools/Svg2Dwg/Svg2Dwg.js:70\n<global>() at :scripts/Pro/Tools/Svg2Dwg/Svg2Dwg.js:78"
Warning: At least one uncaught exception:
Warning: "main() at :scripts/Pro/Tools/Svg2Dwg/Svg2Dwg.js:70\n<global>() at :scripts/Pro/Tools/Svg2Dwg/Svg2Dwg.js:78"
22:49:50: Debug: "<global>() at 70"

I'm running QCAD version 3.15.3 on a MAC Elcapitan.

I've tried various combinations but end up with pretty much exactly the same errors

I've trawled the internet but cannot find any documentation on the svg2dwg command

Any steer in the right direction would be much appreciated

Cheers

Ben

The name of the output file has to be specified for this tool. Also DWG R27 has to be put in quotes since it's one argument but contains a space:

/Applications/QCAD.app/Contents/Resources/svg2dwg -t "DWG R27" -o output.dwg Downloads/eas22.svg
