AutoCAD to Radiance

It has been several years since I needed to convert AutoCAD geometry into
Radiance scene descriptions for use in a LINUX environment. I have filters
dating back to the early 1990's. Please advise me about the availability of
more recent, efficient filters which might run within AutoCAD 2000+. I do
realize that Desktop Radiance will provide geometry conversion... I am
trying to avoid loading the whole package, when all I need is an output text
file.

Thanks much,

Rob Shakespeare

   This is an Autocad application that will export all selected
   geometry except ACIS solid modelling entities. ACIS solids
   are only supported by the version included with Rayfront (note
   that DR only converts a very limited subset of of ACIS, Rayfront
   does the full thing).

   Standalone application available for several platforms. No ACIS
   support at all, since that would require the use of expensive 3rd
   party libraries.

Rob,

Radout is an export routine that runs in Autocad 2000. It is available from Georg Mischler at www.schorsch.com at the following link:

Georg has a variety of powerful tools ranging from his Rayfront package (a Radiance based simulation application) to utilities such as Radout.
