New DXF/DWG Export/Import Wizard mystery?

Phenom
Phenom

Have you tried to import those NX exported DXF files? For me, it gives an error message and fail to open. NX DXF/DWG import wiz’s Preview window shows the view but it doesn't open. I could open with E-drawings (Free application).

I don't know if I'm doing anything wrong with those many settings.

Please check the attached exported DXF file. Machinist needs my drawing in DXF format with dimension origin coincide with absolute zero. How would you do this?
In earlier versions, I 2d export IGES and moved the objects and then saved as DXF. With the new NX, there is a message saying that 2d Export function has moved to DXF/DWG Export Wizard. Does anybody know how to use new DWG/DXF export/import wizard to get the results I need?

Not sure about an export issue, but your DXF imports just fine with no settings changes.

Attached should be a video showing what I did.

Could you please share your import settings?

There should only be one video,  not sure why there is two.

The settings I used are the defaults, I didn't change any settings at all.

First, I tried to OPEN the DXF file for many times with different settings and then IMPORT to a new MODEL and DRAWING part.

I should contact GTAC and  go trough my default setiings. I think they are messedup.

 

Have you tried to just FILE>OPEN>( *.DXF FILETYPE)?

 

@PhoeNX_Support Thanks for confirming that you could iMPORT the file without an issue.

I have no problem to open the file you have provided with either File > Open or File > Import > AutoCAD DXF/DWG.
