    Exporting more layers to dwg

    Hi everyone
    I have a really important question.and i would be really thankful if u could help me.
    I have to export layers from revit to dwg based on customer`s layer template. for example in his template there is more than 26 layers for just walls. but i can make only 6 independent and seperate layers for walls in revit. does anyone have an idea to solve my problem?
    Tnx

    Revit is not merely a better way to make DWG files. It is a file translation from one format to another and Revit can't possibly anticipate or meet every permutation of standards people use in other software...even if Autodesk owns them both.

    At some point special requirements can only be met in the native file format with that software. The fact they have 26 layers doesn't automatically mean every layer is necessary or relevant. Discuss how important their requirements are and how not meeting them impacts their process. If it is significant enough it may be worth working in AutoCAD to meet their needs.

    Alternatively running a script or two in AutoCAD after exporting might reassign "walls" to the different layers they really want.
