I thought I would try and open the DWG in eDrawings, save in the eDrawings format and open in Solidworks (which I thought would be a simple operation) however I get the message "the following file names entered were invalid, not found, locked or of an incompatible file type".
You can not open eDrawings files into SW but can go other way round. And for your DWG/DXF import issue, I believe you have two many entities in the file and the import is failing. Open the DWG/DXF in DraftSight (a free editor/viewer for DWG/DXF files) and edit/clean your file before importing in SW.
Oh I wasn't aware that you cant open eDrawings files in Solidworks, seems a bit crazy! Actually Deepak I had downloaded DraftSight, its a good little package. Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
