CGM to SE Draft

How are you opening CGM files in SE?

I know we can not natively...   

DXF is the best intermediate...

 

Any client based tools you found helpful?

 

Right now I'm going CGM --> NX --> DXF --> SE...

 

Want to go CGM --> DXF --> SE  (Ideally SE will add CGM to import/open list of supported types)

Matt,

 

Give Larson a call. They are CGM experts. I know them very well and I believe they can take care of you on this one.

Hello @Johnson_BigMatt,

yes larson can be here the best option. Microstation can also open cgm files and save to dxf.

Most converter create with a cgm file only a embedded picture in the cad file format you wish.

In older times, it was possible to import cgm in some office product.

cgm you can view with insight connect to but saving here seams not possible.

 

Best Regards

Wolfgang

@Johnson_BigMatt  Here is a cloud based site that supposedly will do this and also has a free plan if not doing too many/big files...

Yea, I've seen a few online converters,  I'm not a liberty to trust such sites with our data.
