Imported DXF file not showing up

Recommended Posts

I have several DXF files for a project I am working on that was sent to me by the architect. He is working in AutoCad and sent them to me in DXF format. Some of the DXF's I am importing into CA seem to be opening properly for the most part, but some appear blank. I do not have much experience importing DXF's to CA as I just moved over to CA recently. Any advice? I would be willing to import the files in DWG or convert from PDF and trace over if needed. Not opposed to doing a little more work as long as it gets done correctly. Would appreciate any advice on which method would be less of a hassle.

 

I have attached 2 files in case anyone wants to give it a look. Maybe you might see something I am missing. One of them I am able to open and see the data and the other is showing up blank for me. The file "First Floor Plan" is the one that is showing up blank. "Lower Level Building Plan" is opening up fine. Any help is appreciated!!!

It also does not open in NanoCad, TurboCad and is a mess in DXF viewer. Something wrong with the file.

I was wondering if it was a problem with the file. Thank you for that!

 

Will see if the architect can resend or send in DWG. Thank you sir!

I opened in Trueview and it said there were missing referenced files.  The tilte block shows up in Layout but only a reference to some sort of .png file in model space.  Not like the "LOWER LEVEL".
