    importing Autocad drawings

    perry leets

      I have an Autocad drawing which I want to import into an SW drawing. It has several detail views and a lot of dimensions so I really dont want to have to redraw it each time I need it. If I open the Acad drawing with SW, it creates two high level items in the feature tree. One is a "model" (which you usually dont see in an SW drawing) and the other is an empty sheet. This presentation is similiar to the way Acad does it, with a full scale model, and a seperate, scalable, view of that model. Now the "model" in my SW drawing looks great, just as it did in Acad. However, when I switch over to the "sheet", I see no way of getting a view of that model into the sheet.

      How is this done?

      thanks
