Importing AutoCAD file into Houdini, issue ...


Recommended Posts


I tried to import an AutoCAD drawings file into Houdini, but here are some problems: I saved my CAD file as "DXF", but only DFX files saved in "AutoCAD R12" can be imported (other versions doesn't works !), and this imported file is somehow corrupted ! (look at image bellow).

Any idea?


(My DXF and AutoCAD file is attached here).

I realized if I turn OFF the " Linetype Generation" option in AutoCAD, the problem will be solved. So in AutoCAD:

1) type "PEDIT"

2) Press "M" for multiple selection

3) Select all lines

4) Select "Ltype gen"

5) type "OFF"

6) Press " Enter " twice.

7) Save your file

8) Enjoy.
