Import dwg as Usable Sketch Entities

Creator
Creator

I'd like to import dwg data into NX11 as actual, usable sketch entities, or at least as entities from which usable sketch entities can be produced. With the methods I've seen discussed so far in this forum, the data comes in only as curves floating in space, apparently unrecognizable even by the Project Curve command. The imported data is apparently of no use at all in creating 3D geometry.

 

Is anyone aware of a method for making usable sketch entities from imported dwg/dxf data?

The external dwg impot export should have a setting which turns curves from the Dwg to sketch curves.

I agree, but I'm unsure whether you're saying it should have this funtionality, or that it does have it. If it does, I'm certainly not seeing it. Smiley Sad

In the External Import settings,  change  Model data to Drawing sheet and then a switch command comes up to create sketch curves.  I thought this was an option in modeling also. 

 

I was wrong about this I am so sorry.

 

  Then may be able to export these sketches to 3d. if you have the NX layout license.

If the dxf/dwg is imported to modelling

Have you looked at "Add Existing Curves" in the sketch environment?
