Deactivate hatches for batch raster convert

Post by garciadelcastillo » Thu May 23, 2019 10:42 pm

Hello,

I am writing a batch process to convert thousands of CAD files to raster. The source files are from very different origins, and many get rasterized with large black fills due to solid hatches.

Is there any way to deactivate hatches with raster convert tools such as "dwg2bmp"? Or is there a way to pre-process the CAD file to remove all hatches first?

Thanks a lot! :)

No, not out of the box.
You could write your own script if you are fluent in JavaScript (starting point: https://qcad.org/en/tutorial-command-line-tool-scripts).
