      Hello Sam,


      Try exporting an IGES file from AutoCAD and opening the IGES file in SpaceClaim.


      The problem is an AutoCAD is a 2D drafting program and a single file can contain many views, and when you export the entire file, you might end up with a mess in SpaceClaim. The AutoCAD experts at your company probably know how to export a single view out of a large drawing and put that in a separate file.


      Put the IGES file inside a zip archive and attach it to your reply if it didn't go well.


      Regards,


      Peter
