Importing DXF Files
Use the ImportDXF command to read a DXF file and open it in a separate drawing window. A DXF file (Drawing Exchange File) is a standard ASCII text file containing the database information for the entities and objects in a CAD drawing.
To import DXF files:
- Type ImportDXF.
- In the dialog box, navigate to the DXF file to import.
- Click Open to load the DXF file or click and click Open Read-Only to open the file without modifying it.
- If you try to save a read-only file with changes, an error message prompts you to save the file under another name.
