Importing from AutoCAD 2004 Dimension problems

Question

When I get a file from autoCAD and inport it into VW 11.5 Architect- it seems that the dimensions hash marks are huge- Is there s way to prevent this??

Import at a larger scale. In the first dialog box after you choose the file in the section Model Space there are two radio buttons, choose This Scale: and set it to something reasonable like 1". In a large AutoCad file VectorWorks is trying to fit it to the page resulting in too small a scale.

1:48 seems to be a good scale that I've found success with regarding this subject.

I have to agree with Katie. I had problems when I intially started with the company I am at because ACAD blocks imported with horrible lineweights. 1:48 is fairly consistant at getting me a nice import.
