Bringing 3d AutoCAD into SW - tips and techniques

Hello All:

this is not so much a question but a give-back. At SWW09 I gave a presentation on general legacy issues. I received some feedback that people were looking for some more information on dealing with AutoCAD files in particular.

I just finished a small project on translating a somewhat poor 3d AutoCAD file into SolidWorks. It wasn't the most obvious use of SolidWorks and DWGeditor, so I documented what I did.

As a give-back to this generous community, I'm attaching a short PDF of my process (download the file and change the extension from PNG to PDF, hopefully that will get around the "no PDF attachments").

I hope this can give somebody ideas or save them some time when they're dealing with similar issues.

Thank You All,
