Urgent!! AutoCAD linked Images not importing

Recommended Posts

My colleague is trying to import a ACAD file that has numerous PNG image files attached. When imported into VW 2011 the images are replaced with boundary boxes and the images are missing. This file contains elevation views involving dozens of art object images.

Is there a step in the import dialog that we should modify? Please help, we don't want to have to do this whole project in AutoCAD because of this problem with the images.

If your colleague has the PNG images, he may have to go the extra step of importing them into the VWX file, using the boundary boxes as reference.

I've had the same situation with Sketchup files with mapped images that don't import into VWX. It seems the only imported file that does import images is 3DS.
