Hello,

 

Thanks to anyone that can help me with this. Yes, I know both my versions of software are very old. Just can't afford the upgrades at this time.

 

I am trying to take a 3D object I create in AutoCAD v2011 and bring it into Chief v10.08b. Again, yes, I know older versions. Hopefully someone had this issue some time ago and can help me figure it out. I can get as far as the select object in the "Symbol Wizard, it accepts the dwg version and all, but I don't get the "next" button highlighted. I heard of using the 3dsout command, but that is not available in 2011 and the updated "arx" only goes to 2009 I believe. I have tried saving in all the previous versions available in the saveas and dxf's.

 

Any help is apprecaited.

 

Thank you.

 

Tim

you will need someone to volunteer to import the autocad 2011 file and then save it

to a version of autocad that Chief ver 10 can use - probably around 2004/5

 

you might be able to do a google search and find a free utility that can convert

an autocad file to an older version
