Copy/paste top, side, end views of an ACAD assembly into a part file, extrude multiple sheet metal, structural, and piping to create a Solidworks assembly?
Hello Jeff,..maybe try multiple viewports (link)
Have not used it in 15 years but look up 2D to 3D conversion in SolidWorks help. There is even a toolbar for it.
First step would be as Solid Air said.
There are also lots of videos out there that will show you how.
It will not be creating parts that are defined as Sheet Metal, Pipes, or structural members - it will just be making parts from your 2D Drawings. You will have to define what they will be.
For sheet metal, you will be creating the finished, bent part and will have to convert to sheet metal, unless you are starting with a 2D Flat pattern.
When you convert 2D to 3D you will probably want to only bring in features or center lines ... don't bring in things like screw profiles (if there are any). you can create them in assemblies later more easily.
Like Solid Air I haven't used the 2D to 3D toolbar for a while. I recall it was occasionally a bit counterintuitive, but worked quite well once you figured out the right sequence to do things. If you are going to do much of this, it's probably worth working through the quirks to figure out the 2D to 3D tools.
