    Difficulty importing dwg file of topographic survey

    John Patterson

      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
