Join Jomarc Baquiran for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing and exporting DXF, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Fusion 360.
- [Instructor] We have here, 1-2.dwg…from our previous lesson.…Head up to our application menu, and let's save this…as, moving this up, saving this to an…AutoCAD 2013 DXF file, and hitting save.…Heading back to Fusion, let's create a sketch,…and place that sketch on our axes plane.…
From here, we can head to insert, and select insert DXF.…Let's locate the file we generated,…selecting 1-2, hitting open.…Here we have the option to change units, to specify…x, y distance, to turn on and off the layers.…I'm going to accept the default, hitting okay.…
From here, we can now add constraints, add dimensions.…We can directly extrude this, hitting e for extrude.…Let's say we want to grab this profile, and this profile,…at the home view, hold this up…to give this a height, hitting okay.…And, if we made revision to our sketch, going to turn…this on, right-click, selecting edit sketch.…
From here, we can re-export this, as a DXF file.…And that is how we can work around with…AutoCAD DXF and DWG files in Fusion 360.…
