Troubles importing DXF or SVG files


(Anthony Marois) #1

Hey!
Can anyone help me resolve this problem? when i try to open ‘‘dxf’s’’ files, this error message appears and then nothing happens.


what can i do?

Also, when openning a SVG file, simply nothing appears.

Did anyone have a clue?
Thank you a lot!

It’s pretty picky about the SVG’s it will import, but it’s getting better.

Please send any files you’re having difficulty with in to support@carbide3d.com and we’ll see what we can do.

Things which seem to help:

  • removing overlapping / redundant lines
  • polylines rather than curves for DXFs
  • 2004 file format for DXFs

For SVGs, the big thing is CC will only accept paths, not placed pixel images.
