Import an AutoCAD file

You can import files up to 2016 in Design by going to File>Import> AutoCAD® DWG/DXF as a new drawing or AutoCAD® DWG/DXF into the current drawing.  After importing a DWG you will have to verify that it is to scale and if it is not, then you will have to rescale it, remove any unnecessary geometry and revise any geometry to Design Layers.  You can find detailed instructions with screen captures in the Online-help Design Manual or by opening Design, going to the ‘pull-down’ menus Help > Online User Manual, section entitled Importing an AutoCAD® Drawing into DynaScape.
