hello

does anyone know the maximum size of .dxf file that can be imported into vectorworks 2017? I am trying to import an Ordnance Survey dataset of part of Devon in the UK, and I keep getting the insuffcient memory error. My PC is brand new (less that 1 month ) and pretty powerful. I'll put the specs at the bottom of this thread. Any help would be most useful.

When importing into VW do you have your units set to the desired scale, e.g. 1:500 or similar? I have found that this sometimes eases the pain. If that doesn't work can you have them send you the file in parts? If that doesn't work I would be happy to give it a shot!

What is the OS product you are trying to import?

Is it Mastermap, VectorrMap Local or one of the others?

I have imported many OS maps and may be able to offer a suggestion.
