Import Drawing Format

Import Drawing Format

(OP)
Hello,
I'm a Solidworks user and trying help my co-worker with a little problem he's having in Altuim. Question; can you import a dwg or dxf drawing format (exported from Solidworks)into Altium? I would hate if he had to draw it from scratch.

Thanks,

RE: Import Drawing Format

Yes.  In the most recent versions you can also import/export 3D files to help with mechanical layout.

Does this hold true for 2D dwg/dxf files. I should've stated it in my post. My bad.

Thank you
