    Import HFSS dxf file

    smagoon

      Hi,

       

      Thank you for your assistance. I am attempting to import a simple *.dxf file from HFSS. But during the Import, PADS reports an error on Line 7 of the attached file. What am I doing wrong?

       

      Thank you,

          It appears the file was not in the format Layout understands.   Layout supports AutoCAD format R12/13 files.  Files from non-AutoCAD tools like SolidWorks and ProE often need to be saved in AutoCAD before they will import to Layout.

           

          I opened the .dxf file in AutoCAD and saved it in R12/13 format.  Attached are the .dxf and .pcb file.
