Can't import autocad files to my sketchup pro 2018


#1

i can’t import autocad model to sketchup pro 2018. It gives error while importing autocad files. Any solution guys???


#2

What is the error?


#3

my software is not importing the .dxf and .dwg files.


please see the upload…it says import results and then shows nothing. if i press close, dialog box appears. i will be so thankful for ur help. Im running sletchup pro 2018 in Mc-os, High sierra 2017.

Try importing the dxf file into Blender (free) then you can at least see if it’s a file issue or SketchUp issue. Share the file if you like and I will try.


#5

umm the thing is i don’t have Blender in my Mc… do you have any suggestion for Sketchup pro. I am sending u a simple file…hope you will help me.


#6

You need to upload the file here using the attach function.


#7

better use the free Teigha DXF/DWG Viewer and try if saving down to the DWG version 2000 helps.


#8

here it is


#9

Nope didn’t upload


#10

bt it did upload successfully… idk whats happening


#11

How large is the file, maybe just upload it here instead https://wetransfer.com/


#12

If it is larger than 3mb it won’t upload.


#13

its 4.4mb. i am uploading new one Drawing1.dwg (24.4 KB)


#14

24kb for the file is suspiciously small, according to my computer at least it’s empty. Can you try uploading the 4.4mb version to https://wetransfer.com/


#15

yeah its just a simple plan


#16

saved down w/ Teigha to DWG v2000, works.

Drawing1.DWG2000.dwg (417.2 KB)
