DWG FILE OPENING

Postby GEM » Thu Jun 30, 2005 10:33 am

I was sent a dwg file that I opened in MSCAD2004. Most of the data displayed properly. However, at least two layers containing contours will not display. I can see the data in ACAD2004 LT but can't in MSCAD. Any ideas?

Thanks GEM

Proxy Entity

Postby Glen Cameron » Thu Jun 30, 2005 11:01 am

The contours are probably not polylines, like most contours are. They are probably proxy entities created in a program such as LDD. Ask the customer to either Explode the contours to create polylines, or to redo the contours as polyline instead of the propriatary proxy entities. Then have them resend the DWG to you.

Cheers,
