dwg2bmp: How can I change the area shown in the output?

Post by andrew » Mon May 22, 2017 2:01 pm

dwg2bmp by default performs an auto zoom to find out the extents of the drawing. If the output appears to be smaller than expected or there are large margins, there are likely small entities far away from the main drawing area. Delete those entities to fix the auto zoom behaviour.

Alternatively, you can also specify a window to zoom to:

Code: Select all

dwg2bmp -w x,y,width,height
