I am having trouble moving and rotating 3D curves that were imported to a new part via DXF.
-I drag and drop DXF file into solidworks.
-This brings up the DXF/DWG import and I select Import to New Sketch>3D Curves or Model.
-Then click finish which displays the model curves.
However, these curves were created using a FARO arm and exported through Verisufr as a DXF. The CSYS fo the FARO does not correspond with my model cooridinate system so transformation is required. I had orignally set the FARO data as its own part and then created an assembly of my model and the FARO data so that I could rotate the FARO data as desired. However, this approach seems to have opened up a pandoras box of bugs and problems for me. Between parts disapearing from the assmebly and to things being unselectable for no reason I am feeling a bit like a dog chasing its tail. There has to be a simple way to do this, right? I have curves, they need to be moved. How hard can that possibly be? I have used umpteen million different CAD packages and NEVER had such trouble trying to do a simple transform.
