Walk through the 2D interface for DWG and DXF files.
- [Instructor] Of all the processes that we come across…when importing geometry into SolidWorks,…creating a new SolidWorks drawing from imported 2D data…is one of the easiest options.…You can see here a drawing that I have created…as a DWG file that I downloaded off of McMaster-Carr.…I'm going to go ahead and open this up in SolidWorks…and convert this to a 2D SolidWorks drawing…which will then be native of SolidWorks…and a little bit easier for me to handle down the road.…Let's go ahead and go into SolidWorks.…We start like in any other processes…by going up to our open dialogue box…and navigating to the part that we want to bring in.…
So, here we can see the DWG file…and just a note, by selecting the DWG file type…from the drop down window here we can filter out…so that only DWG files are shown.…So if you have a big directory filled of DWG files…or a mix of files, that can be handy.…We go ahead and click open and SolidWorks…brings up another prompt specifically…for DXF and DWG importation.…So you can see here that I've got the option selected…
