Understand Lineweight and Penwidth setting

From version R2000 AutoCAD starts to support lineweight parameter. You could directly command output linewidth. However, users have to set penwidth to configure the linewidth and color of printing and output before AutoCAD R2000.

Acme DWG Converter supports these two output modes. But at present, the current version cannot make the two patterns compatible simultaneously. If you choose lineweight mode, the process will ignore the designed penwidth but to render the linewidth according to the lineweight parameter; if you define the penwidth setting mode, the process will completely ignore the lineweight settings. In this way, the data are output according to the penwidth data, you could set the output color and linewidth in the Pen Width Setting dialogue box.
