I'm trying to do a simple data conversion using FME where I take a point shapefile and convert it to CAD (DWG).

enter image description here

Even though I have connected the attributes I want mapped into the output file, the resulting CAD files ends up with no attributes. If I use 'Extended Entity Data' as my Attribute Output parameter I get several attributes but not these 3 three user attributes. I'm new to FME. My input data has a Z value attribute but is not actually Z- Aware.


Use a CoordinatorExtractor and a 3DForcer to preserve the coordinates as 3D.

In the 3DForcer preserver your existing z values.

Note: you may have to expose those DWG/CAD values before you use these two transformers.
