Tutorial >> Excel to AutoCAD font mapping

In this tutorial, we will show users how Office2CAD can

  • Map Excel font to AutoCAD textstyle

  • Import Excel image into AutoCAD

  • Import Excel cell fill and pattern into AutoCAD

  • Import Excel drawings and shapes into AutoCAD

Open Excel file C:\CADTool\tutorial\office\tut05.xls. This Excel sheet contains font Arial, Times New Roman, Impact, and Arial Black. We will show users how to map these fonts to the same fonts into AutoCAD.

Step 1

Inside AutoCAD, Click on Format >> Text Style ...

Create a new a text style named Impact, set its font to    as shown below. 

Click on Apply button to continue.

Step 2
Similar to Step 1, create a new text style named Arial Black
Step 3

Click on CADTool >> Import Excel Data  to sheet import C:\CADTool\tutorial\office\tut05.xls

Map XLS Impact to DWG Impact.

 

Step 4

Map XLS Arial Black to DWG Arial Black.

Click on OK button to place table in AutoCAD.

Step 5

We can find that

  • All fonts get imported as they are inside Excel

  • The logo image inside Excel gets imported

  • The drawings/shapes (dimension and arrow) get imported

  • Excel cell patterns get imported

  • Excel cell fills get imported

 

User can create any text style in AutoCAD, not only using Windows true type fonts, but also AutoCAD fonts such as romans.shx or complex.shx. All Excel fonts can be mapped to AutoCAD fonts as well.

For the reason that Excel cell size is set to accommodate true type font, when a true type font is imported as an ACAD font, it may run across the cell border. Office2CAD provides two scale factors to adjust this. Please refer to FAQ 3-4 for details.

 

In the next tutorial we will show users how to map Excel cell fill and pattern to any available AutoCAD hatch pattern.
