Dear Mark Can I do this? transfer my drawing from ACAD 2016 to solid works and vise versa
I'm not "Dear Mark" - but sure you can load Autocad drawings in Solidworks and you can save Solidworks drawings as Autocad
You can't "transfer", but you can import/export.
This removes any form od parasolids or links you may have within SolidWorks.
I personally don't see the purpose of exporting/importing a drawing between the two. If you have a customer that use ACAD, send them a DXF/DWG file, but don't receive it back.
