What is the proper procedure to bring these files into free2d so that all of the layers are intact as the original AutoCAD file and then be able to save it back to autocad format when done editing for my maintenance person so that he can edit it in his autocad?
I just want to be able to bring in the Autocad file and work with it and be able to save it back to Autocad format so that my shop supervisor can use it in his version of Autocad and still have the layers remain intact without all the data being moved to 1 layer. I loaded the software in ISO format and I wondered if I should have used ANSI instead. John
John, The geometry should remain on the same layers. If you open an AutoCAD file in Solid Edge, do you see the layers from the original AutoCAD file? The ISO format sets up a metric template as the default. ANSI sets up an inch template as the default. Are the original AutoCAD files inch or metric? Regards, Rick B.
