    Importing DXF files ?

    CHRIS HOLSKE

      I am struggling with importing DXF files to measure features.  I get PDF and DXF files from my customers and I need to create sheet metal models for my CAM package.

       

      On occasion the PDF prints are missing dimension so I need to import the DXF to measure some features.  It looks like the DXF files are Auto Cad and they are just flat/2D prints.  In the past I have been importing them into CadKey just to measure missing dimensions then switch back to SolidWorks for the modeling.  I would like to break free from CadKey once and for all but I am struggling with the best way to import these DXF files.

       

      Any help will be greatly apreciated.
