    .dxf import problem

    martfam

      My company just installed PADS Layout 2005 SPac on a laptop for me to use at home, but I am unable to import a .dxf file. I need to do so to get the board outline. Does anyone have any ideas? It has worked before on different computer.

          Check the dfx version that you are importing.  I remember that PADS 2007 required an AutoCAD 2000 dxf file to import properly.  I believe that PADS 2005 did, but am not sure.   PADS 9.0 seems to require the older R14 version.  Export your dxf in a variety of older fomats: R12, R14, 2000 and try to import them.
