Importing a DXF/DWG CAD drawing

John 2013-10-11 09:47:19

I wanted to share this technical support request that was put forward by a user.
His request was to load a CAD drawing in the widely known dwg/dxf file formats and use it as a background to trace upon.
To import a DXF/DWG file simply use the "dwg/dxf drawing" object which can be called up from the "2D Graphics" menu.

I am trying to enter a survey plan in to the file so that contours can be extracted from the DWG.
Part way through the upload, I get a message "invalid pointer" and Edificius crashes.

Dear Edificius User,
in order for us to provide you with the best possible support, please send us your Edificius file (.EDF) together with the .DWG file your are attempting to load.

Hope to hear from you soon
