Files of type --- .dxf
Create new SolidWorks drawing --- Convert to SolidWorks entities
Import this sheet as > Model
Select sheet settings and position to suit
Save Sheet Format
I did try that but it does not work. I can open a dxf file but everything that shows up is in the drawing layer of the file and not the format layer of the file....so, when you select save sheet format you are actually saving nothing because there is no format.
Thanks for responding.
Anybody have any other ideas?
I figured it out. Open the DXF in solidworks, copy everything on the drawing, right click and "edit sheet format", then paste everything onto the format of the drawing, right click and "edit sheet", then save "save sheet format". However this does not create active boxes and you will need to add text boxes in the appropriate fields but that is easier than have to draw the whole format over again.
I knew I was missing something!
