Issues importing dwg

Recommended Posts

Hey!

Depends on many factors, where did you get the model from? 3dwarehouse?  If so, depending on which chief you are running, you should download the appropriate version.  For example, I use x10, and if i download models from them i choose 2016 or 2017 versions.  Also it depends on the number of faces/polygons the model has, for example if its a couch or chandelier with like 200,000+ faces/polygons, then its a very very big model that is hard for chief to handle.  I try to download models with 100k or less, the less the better and easier to use in Chief.  Hope that answers your question.

2D or 3D file? dwg version? file size? size of file you're importing into? your specs-computer and chief version? all are factors, how long have you waited? (dwg files can take a while) tried opening the dwg in another program to make sure it's not corrupt?
