I need help to convert my Autocad drawing to the CSV format. After that I need to upload that CSV drawing to 3D Warehouse software.

The problem is that a CSV file is just a plain-text format which contains only text and you are trying to convert a graphical CAD file to text format. There is no converter available for this type of job because there aren't any converters at all that can perform this job.

I'm not sure what your AutoCAD Drawing is of, if it's just points, or verticies that you need to export, do a "dataextraction" command, then export the xyz values to excel, then save it as a CSV. I do this all of the time for surveying applications.

Thanks for the idea of "dataextraction" command, it is a pitty that i do not have AutoCAD and the software i use (TrueView 2015) does not allow to type commands, at least i can not enter them on lower pane.

My problem is that i need to Export data from a DWG to plain text, data of only a Layer, that layer has all the elements (Lines and Circles) setted as a route/path.

I need: Length and Radious, and of course mantain the correct secuence, each element is contiguous to the next.

I mean: After a line, at its end there is the next element (can be a line or an arc), after that, another, and another after that one, ... all to make a path.

I need that path in plain text, one element per line, two columns (Lenght,Radious) of such elements, first row = first element, next row = next element of the path.

Any idea how to?
