This is my first post—just now joined this forum so that I could have a chance to ask about something that would greatly accelerate my workflow. In short:
How could I quickly insert a DXF?
My workflow is thus:
- Create a vector of an orthographic projection in Illustrator
- Import (or, "Insert") the DXF into SolidWorks
- Align a point of the new sketch to the origin
Since I usually don't get the vector right on the first try, I usually have to create between tens and hundreds of DXFs. Importing and aligning them has been cumbersome. I managed to get Align as a button on a visible toolbar, but I don't see any such option for inserting DXFs. Any advice would be much appreciated.
