arc, circle, spline (NURBS), ellipse, elliptical arc, point, donut, mline, hatch (including
gradient fills), and wipeout. Variable width polylines maintain only their starting
width when translated into SmartLines.

|DWG References||DGN References||Depending on the export option specified, all referenced DWG files, including nested
DWG references, are either converted into DGN files, combined into a single DGN file
as cells, or discarded.
MicroStation V7 does not support nested references to references that are merged into
|DWG Model||DGN Design Model||The model in a DWG file is converted into a DGN file.|
|DWG Layout||DGN Sheet Model||
When exporting to V8, any initialized layouts are converted into sheet models in the
V7 only supports one model. For V7, several DGN files can be exported: one for the
|AEC Objects||AEC objects are not supported. Use the EXPORTTOAUTOCAD command to convert AEC objects
to basic AutoCAD objects before exporting to DGN.
