DWG Import Issue

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever see this issue?  Know a cause/solution?


The file is fine in AutoCAD, but importing into Vectorworks messes with the arcs.  All of the attributes are correct, except they've been given different start/end points.

Hey @MultipleWays ,

I have had this issue in the past when exporting DWG.

Drag'n'Drop the DWG into Vectorworks till a pop-up dialogue box appears 'DWG Import Options'. There is an 'Advanced' button (bottom left), click on that for options, I would suggest to play with the 'Location' category. I assume the 'Align with Internal Origin' would be best suited for you.


Hope this helps!
