I have been given a task by work to figure out a way of extracting metadata from a .dwg so that the information can be inputted into an application that is being developed.
It is my understanding that a .DWG is purely an image with attributes and there is no metadata, however there is text information in each .dwg that i need.
I have 15,000 drawings to sift through and manually viewing each one and noting the information down i.e drawing number, location etc etc would be an extremely tedius job that would take far too long.
Does anyone have any ideas how i can do this? preferably with a batch application.
I have had a look on google and have found a few applications that would be able to extract information (attributes) but none that extract the information that i actually need.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks very much
