View Full Version : Problem importing dxf objects

02-03-2005, 12:49 PM

I'm trying to load a VERY SIMPLE 2D dxf file into LW6.5 (a plan view of a clock escape wheel - just a few lines and curves).

It's loading all the straight line segments and ignoring all the curved segments.

I've tried saving the dxf as various old versions from Autocad, but it makes no difference.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Or is this a bug.

I've also tried loading the same object as a 3DS file, which produces garbage, and as an eps, using the EPSF loader plugin which doesn't seem to work at all.

Thanks, Chris.

LightWave won't import a 2D dxf file - it has to be 3D.

OK, Thanks Ben.
