Hi Users,

I am experiencing difficulties when importing a dxf file into a sketch.

I have a dxf file (600kb) which is constructed of many splines and curves.

A series of lines which resemble leaves (hence all the curves/splines/arcs)

It will be a extrude cut out of a sheet.


Anyway my approach has been to either open in dwg editir then cut and paste into the sketch.

Or alternatively open in drawing file and iset from drawing view.


As previuosly suggested in the forums, SW is trying to build the lines all separetly.

What happens then is SW and my PC just crash and cannot deal with all the information.


Any suggestions on how I can get the file size down and less complex whilst still retaining the desired output.

Kind Regards
