Difficulty importing dwg file of topographic survey

Hi,

 

I'm trying to import a dwg file of a topographic survey.

 

I've tried most (all?) of the options available in the import wizard, but the only way I can get anything useful is to set the units of the imported file to millimetres.

 

If I don't do that, I get an error message telling me that thousands of points are beyond the limits of the sketch, or else I get just a few marks showing up in the drawing.

 

If I set the units to millimetres, then what I see is a blank white sheet, but clicking on 'Zoom to fit', the white sheet shrinks to a few millimetres across, and I can see the rest of the drawing clearly (against the default gray backround).

 

I guess the drawing isn't fitting onto the drawing template (the blank white sheet).

 

Can anyone suggest a way to import this drawing?

 

Thanks,

 

John
