Combining two dxf files

How do you combine two dxf files to make one drawing. I can copy the one dxf file into the other but I can't get it centered on the original drawing. Is there a tool to center it on the original drawing when bringing it in. Thanks for your help as I am a new user.

Hi there @Boom,


If your two drawings are based on the same locale, relative to the origin, then it maybe just as simple as altering the option for "Preferred 2D Paste Behaior"......when in draft [blank, or existing] go to the Application button > Solid Edge Options > General tab, about midway down the selections.




"Paste to selected position" will place it to match your cursor location......use that option, if you need to reorient the new geometry over the existing.


Maybe you could post some images, or even the files you want to merge.
