Importing updates to a DWG file

Recommended Posts

When I start a new project the Client generally provides a CAD base file for me. As we move along the Client makes changes to his site drawing and forwards me new grading, new road locations, etc. Is there a simple way to put in the file update? Right now when I drop in one of these change files it is a painful process to get the data corrected. Thanks for the help

Instead of using the shuffle file technique, why not reference the DXF/DWG file instead. Provided that you store this DXF/DWG file in the same folder and it has the same name, every time you open the file, it will check the DXF and reimported if necessary.

When you imported DXF/DWG file, tick the option to reference at the bottom of the dialog box.
