Autocad-readable dxf

Post by uflem » Fri Jun 21, 2019 4:38 pm

I remember reading an announcement somewhere on how to save a file in dxf so that it will be readable in Autocad. But I cannot find the page again and I do not remember which Save As option to use (there a gazillions of them). Please tell me!

It depends on your Autocad version. Choose the format that matches your Autocad version. For example "R27 [2013] DXF" for Autocad 2013, "R24 [2010] DXF" for Autocad 2010, etc.

It's not me who has the Autocad--it's the engineer I'm sending my drawings to. He didn't know, but could open dwg versions--so, the issue is moot for the time being. Thanks anyway!
