Import ACAD Drawings

Hello All,

Well I'm back with more "Q",s. My question is: What is the fastest, simplest, easiest way to import an ACAD drawing into SW keeping the DIMS & Tolerances intact? I also have the drawing with a Template showing basic items, such as P/N, tolerances, drawing size, etc. Can I also import those in intact? Then I want to save it as an SW file.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Try exporting the acad drawing as DXF. Then simply drag and drop the dxf file in a drawing. You can also drag and drop a dxf onto a part and it will create a new sketch. Im not sure if this method will keep the text entities intact, but it is worth a shot.
