importing DXF format


New member
Pro/E should be better enabled to import DXFs. It should be able to create a new drawing from DXF and/or it should change the format based on the original DXF size/format.

I am using Pro/E 2000i2.
I use the 2d drawing mode of Pro/E or Wildfire to import 2d dxf files. When you export from the drawing it comes out faceted upon entering the part as an import. I have had luck exporting a dxf as IGES from Alias but could not get the curves this time. Still came into the Pro/E Part faceted. Humm. I want true radius values!

Any luck?
