I am confused as to what you mean by a 2000 dwg.
Are you talking about a drawing that was created ion Solidworks 2000?
I'm assuming you are looking to convert 2000 version dwg files into 3d models in SW2006.
Depending on the need, you can convert them into parts and mate them or make a top-down assembly.
Sorry, yes it's an Autocad 2000 dwg file.
I was hoping in a few mouse clicks in SW have all 40 layers converted into a SW ASSM.
Right now they come in as parts all on top of each other.
I thought Maybe I had the wrong choices checked in my SW import dialog.
I have been doing this for the past 2 weeks.
This is the method I have use to create my part models.
Start a new part, having just planes and axis. Select a plane
and use this command sequence.
Then when you see the draing on the plane you are editing a sketch. Delete all of the line entities that
are not part of the part you are trying to create and once you have your part outline you can use
contour select to create your geometry. I hope this makes sense.
