getting harder and harder to translate and open dwg and dxf files

Post by Lester Tobias » Mon Jan 23, 2023 11:51 pm

I've always had trouble opening either native autocadd or autocadd dxf files. I usually go in, hide or remove all unnecessary layers, explode all the blocks, remove all text and dimensions. Then I "save down" to auto cad 2010. It used to be a toss up whether or not Powercadd would open the damn file but lately it's virtually impossible and I have to force quit just to try again.

What am I doing wrong?

I am running Mojave 10.14.6 and Powercadd 9

In the PowerCADD folder on your computer there might be a Utilities folder with ODAFileConverter.app which can be very handy.
