Importing DWG's into VectorWorks Arch, 11.5

Recommended Posts

I kmow there has been many of discussions regarding importing DWG's into VectorWorks 11.5 but I just can't seem to find one that is pertaining to my problem.

When I try to import a DWG into Vectorworks, an "Error 3 message comes up- Indicating the file could not be opend. Make sure it is not already open in another application."

Please help

As I was reading the file name at the top of the screen, it says that it is a read onoly file- How do I get past this- do It matter? Can I import the file and make changes to it?

Are you trying to import the file directly off a CD? If so that is probably why you get the read only message. Copy it to the hard drive and try again if it won't let you open it.

Once you have imported the file you can save it with a new name etc
