importing dwg files & getting blown out


New member
We just upgraded to 2001. I tried to import a *.dwg file but I keep getting blown out. We are running build 2001490. Is this a known bug or am I just asleep at the wheel here? If the latter is true, would somebody e-mail me the directions on how to import a dwg file into Pro? I tried following the Pro Help techniques, but didn't find them very useful for this situation. Thanks in advance!

We've found that Pro/E crashes with fatal errors on some isolated occasions where we've imported from DXF. (eg: try to modify driver dimension in drawing mode).

A new build of Pro/E (2001 2003010) fixes this prob.
