2D Draftsight Drawings Transfer to Solid Edge

N/A
I started to learn on 2D DraftSight and have drawings on file. I would like to know how to transfer these drawings onto Solid Edge.

Thanks

Use the Open command in Solid Edge and change the "File of type" filter to DWG. Specify a DFT template if asked.

Thanks,

I found the drawing on DraftSight with the drawing done, opened it and finding the dimensions are missing as well as some of the text is missing.
The drawing was bigger than the screen... hit fit the screen went to a minuet drawing. Had to hit zoom to area many times, to even evaluate it.

Crousie,
I expect there is a scaling issue going on here, upon import......when you are browsing for the file to open into Solid Edge, before you choose to open it, have a glance at the "Options" button and there will be some things to adjust to your requirements. Dimensions and other text may/may not come in cleanly from that "other" product, but it's very easy to just place new ones. Smiley Very Happy
