To Export Multiple Visible Edges DGN Files
Create an Input command file and key in EDGES BATCH <input_command_file>.
In the above step:
<file_name> is the DGN file from which the information for the visible edges file is obtained. The wildcard characters * and ? can be used to specify more than one file. Unless a complete path is specified, the Design Files configuration variable (MS_DEF) is used to locate the DGN file(s).
<input_command_file> is the name of the input command file containing the processing details, such as file names and switches.
Unless a switch(es) is specified, the default settings set forth in the following table are used to control the conversion.
|Switch||Effect||Default (switch not present)|
|-A[L|M|H]||Selects low, medium, or high accuracy for certain curved surface operations.||-AM|
|-B[D|V]||Process the entire DGN file (-BD), or the view only (-BV).||In perspective views, all view boundaries (side, front, back) are always applied. For parallel views this option enables processing of the entire file without clipping to any of the view planes.|
|-ED[2|3]||Specifies whether a 2D or a 3D visible edges DGN file is to be created (if -D is not present).||Create a 3D visible edges DGN file.|
|-EF<edgesfile>||Specifies the filename and path of the visible edges DGN file.||Name is the same as the DGN file with the suffix .hln saved in the out/dgn directory.|
|-EXPANDCLS, -EXPANDCLSOFF||Enables/disables modifications to the Line Style Attributes in the generated geometry||-EXPANDCLSOFF|
|-H, -HOFF||Enables/disables output of hidden edges||-HOFF|
|-HC<color>, -HC||Where <color> is specified, hidden edges are given that color. If no color is specified, they have the same color as the source.||-HC|
|-HL<level>, -HL||Where <level> is specified, hidden edges are placed on that level. If no level is specified, they are placed on the same level as the source.||-HL|
|-HS<line_style>, -HS||Where <line_style> is specified, hidden edges are given that line style. If no line style is specified, they have the same line style as the source.||-HS|
|-HW<line_weight>, -HW||Where <line_weight> is specified, hidden edges are given that line weight. If no line weight is specified, they have the same line weight as the source.||-HW|
|-I, -IOFF||Enable, disable, calculation of intersections between elements.||-I|
|-M[EXACT|FAST]||Selects calculation method for edges. Corresponds to the Method settings in the General tab of the Export Visible Edges dialog.||-MEXACT|
|-PAUSE, -NOPAUSE||Activates/Deactivates the pause (for OK) dialog between views.||-NOPAUSE|
|-REMOVESMOOTH, -NOREMOVESMOOTH||Removes/leaves edges between tangent faces.||-NOREMOVESMOOTH|
|-RX<resolution>||Sets the x resolution for Fast method (-MFAST).||-RX1000|
|-RY<resolution>||Sets the y resolution for Fast method (-MFAST).||-RY1000|
|-S<saved_view>||Select a saved view. This view is activated (attached).||The view is used in its current position.|
|-SHOWTEXT, -PROCESSTEXT|| Forces all text and dimensions to show, even if hidden by surfaces.
Processes text and dimensions like other geometry (may be hidden).
|-T<mu:su>||Sets the tolerance, in working units, for certain curved surface operations.||.|
|-TCB||Instead of using defaults, use settings from the DGN file.||.|
|-USEMATERIALCOLOR, —USEMATERIALCOLOROFF||Controls the "Use Color From Material" option.||-USEMATERIALCOLOROFF|
|-V<view_number>||Visible edges are created from the contents of the specified view.||-V1, visible edges are created from the contents of View 1.|
|-VC<color>, -VC||Where <color> is specified, visible edges are given that color. If no color is specified, they have the same color as the source.||-VC|
|-VL<level>, -VL||Where <level> is specified, visible edges are placed on that level. If no level is specified, they are placed on the same level as in the source.||-VL|
|-VS<line_style>, -VS||Where <line_style> is specified, visible edges are given that line style. If no line style is specified, they have the same line style as the source.||-VS|
|-VW<line_weight>, -VW||Where <line_weight> is specified, visible edges are given that line weight. If no line weight is specified, they have the same line weight as the source.||-VW|
|-X<transparency threshold (0–100)>||Sets the "Transparency Threshold" value. A value of "100" will disable transparency.||10|
