DXF Import as a part

DXF Import as a part

DXF Import as a part

Can someone please help me with a macro to import dxf layers as separate sketches in a solidworks part file?
I'm not familiar with writing macros.

RE: DXF Import as a part

As long as you import as new part you should be able to do that with a tickbox on the second page of the import dialogue box, without the need for a macro, but it does rely on layers actually having been used instead of just different colours.

Is that not working for you?

RE: DXF Import as a part

Hi, Thanks for your response. Yes it works for me but I'm trying to get it done through a macro in order to save time.

RE: DXF Import as a part

You may need to incorporate additional API references outside of SolidWorks to sort out layers in a DXF.

RE: DXF Import as a part

Thanks, I'll see if i can find something on that.Great help!
