Quick Reference

Converts materials created in previous drawing file formats to the current format.


The materials in the drawing that were originally created in a previous drawing file format are updated to the current drawing file format. Drawing file format changes occur infrequently in AutoCAD-based products. For example, format changes occurred in AutoCAD 2000, AutoCAD 2004, AutoCAD 2007, and AutoCAD 2010.

WarningThe conversion may not be correct in all cases. You may need to adjust material mapping, for example.
