I am creating an ArcGIS Model that imports a number of Bentley .dgn files to a geodatabase. My workflow involves:
- Running the CAD to Geodatabase Tool, which brings all the drawing features into a feature dataset.
- Taking the feature types and then selecting features by the "layer" attribute and writing them to a feature class with an appropriate name.
My issue occurs at the Select tool. It will create a feature class even if it did not find any features to place in the feature class. This creates a whole bunch of empty feature classes since there are a number of layers which may or may not show up in any of my .dgns. So, I would like to know if there is a way to keep my model from creating blank feature classes?
