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.
