Can anyone suggest the way to convert dgn to dwg? How to convert microstation to autocad files? I only have access to autocad not microstation.  Is the only way through a converter program? Are there any good free ones? Is there a way to do it without a separate program?

You don't need any converter, just use AutoCAD to convert Microstation DGN format to Autocad DWG. AutoCAD 2009(or higher version) supports reading and writing DGN file (DGN v8 or DGN v7), and both 2d and 3d are accepted, try the commands DGNIMPORT and DGNEXPORT. By the way, you can insert DGN into AutoCAD DWG drawing as underlay (without any conversion).

I don’t know whether ZWCAD reads DGN.
To translate CAD drawings, you can also try the export of "DWG" files (a data format closely related to Autodesk DWG) available in Microstation.

what a pity! zwcad doesn't support dgn file.

I use dgn in autocad like these way:
1. input command IMPORT, select DGN format from file type drop-down list, and then select a dgn file
2. autocad pop up a dialog box, about dgn to dwg settings, such as layer and linetype mapping.
3. Save it in autocad, then it is saved as a dwg file.

these are steps I convert dgn file to dwg by autocad, by the way, only autocad high version supports dgn, for me, I use autocad 2012.

import dgn autocad

import dgn autocad

dgn settings autocad

dgn settings autocad

Hello sir :) If you still need some help with this type of conversion, you can check AutoDWG DGN to DWG Converter Pro. I've been using it for a while and it works really well for me. Trial period isn't long though but I work with DNG files pretty often and investing in such an app turned out to be a good decision. Cheers!
