Importing DXF/PCB data extremely slow/crashes

Question asked by Tim Vriens on Feb 21, 2018



We work a lot with gerber data from PCB's. This means that we load in a gerber file into a different program to convert it into a DXF. These DXF files hold over 10k lines and points.


SolidWorks takes a extremely long time to import these files; if it does at all. Thats why we remove a lot of layers from these DXF files; sometimes removing crucial data.


We're looking for a solution to import everything or atleast import more than we can currently do.



I'm running a quadro M2000 with an i& processor, 22gb of ram and an ssd. We're wondering if paying 1k for a P4000 would improve our situation?
