Reason why I get .dxf Error Invalid File

Mon Nov 16, 2020 10:52 pm

I figured I'd fool with the Model module as I have many 3D modeling files created in Autodesk Inventor that I could use. I converted a .idw drawing file to a .dxf without any issues (supposedly that's how you convert it over at the autodesk forum). But then I tried to load it it gave me the following error:
Code: Select all
Error! Invalid File: "C:\Users\..\myfile.dxf"
.

Just in case it was my video patch I loaded up the sample project but got the same error. What are some reasons this could happen?

Really the only way for me to find out is to try loading the file myself. Can you post a download link?

This could be a better file to check. It's converted from an assembly (.iam) 3D model and not a part file (.ipt) ....thanks for the help.

The specific error message I get is "this file contains no 3d data". Does that help?

Yes, that's good info as I didn't get that error. I'll go and research why it's happening, obviously it's something on my end. Thanks!
