Putting 2d dxf files in 3D assemblies, manually

Top  Previous  Next

You may want to put a 2D dxf file in a 3D position in an assembly:




To do this you must create a plane in the plane you want to DXF file to appear, then add a sketch to that plane. Then, from AutoCAD copy (COPYCLIP) the entities of the DXF file and paste them into the sketch.


Precise locating has been beyond me so far, and even if the entity pasted is a block it gets changed into component lines and circles.
