Can anyone please tell me how to bring a small AutoCad drawing intoa ProE drawing -- and hopefully be able to edit & move it around?


Thanks for any help . . .

if its small u could always open it into sketcher. but if u try
to open a big acad file it will likely crash or take rediculouse
amounts of time.

insert->data from file-> dxf

Thanks so much for the suggestions.



I tried the process you mentioned -- the Acad dxf was brought-in at 0,0 and took many attempts just to move it.
I was hoping someone might know of an infallable process to insert the dwg or dxf, and still be able to scale, edit or move it around.


Maybe I'm expecting too much -- huh?


Thanks again . . .RLRick001

u shoudl see a small red circle with some cross hairs when u import it.
u can use that move move it around to where ever u want in the drawing.
alwasy best to have something for it to snap to though.

if you import in side the sketch it is used only that operation


else import in part mode you can create multiple feature
