    E Drawings?

    Andy Lang

      Hi all,

       

      Just got a DXF file which has opened up in e drawings - im running 2010 version of salad works but was wondering if I can import this image somehow to be able to modify and dimension?

       

      Thanks,

          Andy - You can view/edit/etc in 'Solidworks 2D Editor' (that which used to be called 'Dwg-Editor')?  Not included nowadays in the install & is a seperate download.  Unfortunately it requires a bit of AutoCAD knowledge...

              Haha Keith your like my personal Salad works help guru! I finished the other part - thats so much for your help with the angled bits etc!

               

              Okies, ill grab the disc out and see if the 2D editor is on it. Failing that is e drawings only a way of viewing images and dimensions etc cant be taken off?

               

              Thanks,

              Andy,

               

              I don't remember doing anything special, as far as loading any particular modules, to open .dxf files. I just select DXF under "Files of type:" in my File Open box.
