SubZero dwg import failure

Question

Subzero has newly available 3D CAD drawings of their product lines, which is great.

SubZero CAD Downloads

However, I'm having trouble with some of the files. When I try to import into a blank VW file, it just hangs indefinitely on a Spinning Beachball Of Death, with no progress indicated in the progress bar. Based on earlier posts, I've let it run for several hours, B4 having to force-quit. It happens whether I try batch or single import-with single, it never gets to import options--with batch seems to be same no matter what I set.

All 2D files seem to work (and always have), and some 3D files are OK, like the very complicated and large PRO 48. The particular ones I am struggling with are 700BF Freezer Drawers and 424 Undercounter.

Any advice is much appreciated.

I am not having any problems importing the two mentioned 3D files. Are you importing these into new, blank documents or a document with items already imported into?

Have you tried restarting the computer and importing the file or running Disk Utility, restart, and use VW?

I can email the files to you as VW files if you would like. Please send me an email to the address below.

A few months later, and with a new hard drive and fresh install, I am having the same problems when I try to import the 3D file for 315I :

I am mystified by replication-only processor is the same.

Me too. Force Quit Applications shows :Vectorworks not responding). I tried importing into a new blank document.

OS 10.4.7, VWA12.0.1

I have had a large number of problems inporting DWG files from Autocad... The problem as I understand it is that VW12 can not import from Autocad 2007.... I work in a mixed office environment, and I have to have all of the files exported to autocad 2004 before I can import them onto my machine...

To get better 2d imports, have the exporter explode them first.

No problems here importing any of the files.

Can you confirm, Ray, that you had no problem importing 700BF?

I wonder if this is an issue with the Mac version of VW?

Thanks all for checking. Katie et al, pattern above seems platform related, except that earlier this summer you had been able to import the files. Any ideas?

Thanks for the tip Michael. I'll have AC buddies export in 2004.
