To change the default seed file

  1. Open the mapexport.ini file using a text editor such as WordPad.

    This file is in the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D\R17.2 folder.

  2. Find the section labeled [DGN_V7] or [DGN_V8]. This is where the default seed file is specified.
  3. Specify the new default seed file.

    For example: Driver:RUNTIME_MACROS=_SEED,"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\GIS\ImportExport\4.0\design\seed3d_ft.dgn".

  4. Save and close the .ini file.
