There is no autocad file types in the file type selection when importing in Sketchup Make 2015.
That’s because Cad imports are a Pro only feature.
Oh. Thank you very much.
Guess I got luc
Problem is SketchUp Make 2015 can not import .DWFx files from DWG TrueView 2016 - English the latest format from Autodesk? Maybe AutoCAD 360 will export in the format SU requires?
You didn’t get lucky, the first 30 days of Make runs as a pro trial. After that the pro features stop working.
Nothing (AFAIK) can import DWFx files. It is a proprietary Autodesk file format, originally meant to be a competitor to PDF. DWG is the CAD format.
But they are $$$ and seem to support the original DWF, not necessarily the latest DWFX format ?
Here’s some more advice:
Thanks guys, I was using Drawing True View to access the .Dwg file that only exports .DWFx files so I just ran SU & TrueView at the same time. I’ve now started using AutoCAD 360 & presumably can export selected objects as .DWG like a WBLOCK file to import. Meanwhile I’m enjoying re-drawing the stuff in SU as a matter of practice? 360 is way to slow & better used on a bigger display than the one I’m on. Thanks TIG & Anssi.Great info.
That figures Box. I guess the import & warehouse features will be gone too! I thought I’d run it before & was amazed at the difference.
