Importing dc5 files


#1

I have a few dozen Datacad files I’d like to bring into the modern age.
Probably not possible or practical but I’m selfish that way.

If you also have a running copy of Datacad, you could just export them as dxf. That’s probably the cleanest import route into SU you’re likely to find, unless, of course, the SU development team goes with your suggestion and develops a new dc5 import filter. I think you’re more likely to get hit by a comet, but I suppose it could happen.

Jumping under your umbrella.
Have dc5-files but no DOS-machine.


#5

I ended up installing the free trial version of Datacad 17 to do the export.
