Import file formats


New member
I am a 2d graphics designer working on a Mac, OSX. I need to supply a 2D
file to a client who needs to import it into ProEngineer. What are my
options? I can convert my file to a variety of other file formats. Thanks

Not familar with Mac, OSX

Normally I'd suggest: .dxf or Autocad's .dwg ....if you're able. (For Engineering drawings).

Are you trying to send him coloured artwork?

Colour is not an issue. aline drawing of a logo, just a profile. I have
previously tried .dxf, but this was not recognised, probably a problem
with my file translation. About to try Autocad R14 DWG, whaterver that
is!... Thanks
