    Import DXF file to Part look terrible and slows system down

    Gary Audsley

      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
