Actually, currently we are doing dgn -> shp file conversion using ogr2ogr. Batch convert dgn files to shp files using ogr2ogr
The problem is, at times the point layer is not getting read properly & few attributes are missing. But, if we convert the dgn using xxx.dgn -> Export -> To Shapefile (multiple) all the attributes of the features are getting retained and annotaion layer & point layer is getting saved separately.
But we are doing it file by file. Is it possible to run this as a batch using Arcpy ?
I've tried with the code given in this site https://geonet.esri.com/thread/56828
It work's perfectly. But the files are saved in a gdb. I want it to be saved as separate shapefiles.
import arcpy import glob import os gdb = "D:/Arc/new.gdb" arcpy.env.workspace = gdb arcpy.CreateFileGDB_management("D:/Arc", "new.gdb") reference_scale = "1500" for file in glob.glob(r"D:\Arc\*.dgn"): outDS = arcpy.ValidateTableName(os.path.splitext("d" + os.path.basename(file)) ) arcpy.CADToGeodatabase_conversion(file, gdb, outDS, reference_scale)
