    Opening AutoCAD files into SWX.

    Gary Williams

      I have PWB (Printed Wiring Board) files that come out of our PWB design software as DXF.

      I convert from DXF to DWG using DraftSight.

      I then open the DWG file in SWX.


      I open the DWG file in SWX.

      I Exploded the blocks as SWX recommended during the import process.

      PolyLines were changed to lines/arcs rather than using hatch to fill-in.


      SWX imports into a drawing sheet.


      Because there are more then 5000 entities in the original DXF my computer is taking forever to process my selection.

      How can I import more effeciently?
