Import DXF file to Part look terrible and slows system down

Question asked by Gary Audsley on Aug 16, 2018

I deal with Truck Chassis drawings on a regular basis and often get a DXF file to model a body on to suit the truck chassis detailing holes and such.

 

When I import the DXF I get a very messy DXF with point all over the place as per image below.

I know I can import as 3D curves but this does not show up on the drawing view unless you convert every curve.

 

My question is:

Is it possible to clean up this DXF so I can get a Clean import which does not eat all my resources?

 

Or is there any preferred method this can be achieved to get a clean image for reference and modelling to.

 

Your Help is appreciated.

 

Thanks

Gary
