  • Cheers mala.

    I opened that and yes all those procedures do speed it up

    but objects like doors and windows are missing from the file no matter

    what you do.

    As I said it's no big problem for me.

    Thanks for trying.

    Cian.

    If you have any ACIS solids in the .dwg file, they will not import.

    The message I get with your file, in English, is "The file contains unsupported entities - these will not be imported", so there is something in your file, possibly ACIS solids, that is not supported. Check the MAXON compatability list carefully.

  • It's been a while scince I worked with autocad. Are ACIS solids things like doors and windows

    which are pre made to be inserted into a drawing cause they seem to be the objects missing.

    René, what scale settings are you using in the dwg import prefs?

    Cheers, Alan.

    I use an import scale of 50.

    Peace,

    Thanks René. spoton.gif

    The French warning alert is MAXON's idea to encourage users to become multi-lingual. laugh.gif

    (It's a known bug in the .lang file.)

    Cheers, Alan.

    You're thinking of what Autocad knows as a 'block', which might contain anything that Autocad can handle, lines, text, solids, surfaces, regions, polylines, images etc, etc.

    Autocad is capable of 2 different modes of 3D modeling, surfaces, which are very like a polygon mesh and which I believe C4D 10.5 will recognise OK, and solids, ACIS solids, which C4D balks at. As a loose analogy, surfaces are like textures and solids are like shaders.

    An ACIS solid can be 'exploded'. It won't look any different but it will behave differently and all solid properties will be lost. After being exploded it will just be a collection of 'regions' which I think may be importable into C4D as polygons.

  • It would be nice if it was actually cinema you used mon - fri.

    You can't have it all.

    Is it mainly 2d or 3d work you use it for?

    I work for an offshore installation contractor and I haven't done a 2D drawing in about 5 years. C4D Mon to Fri might be nice. Actually I pretty much do use it Mon to Fri, but after work.
