NX X AutoCAD DWG imports into NX as an empty file

NX for Design



When importing an AutoCAD DWG (*.dwg) file into NX, nothing is imported. Even 
though the import was successful, the DWG file imports as an empty file.


 If the DWG file was directly exported from AutoCAD, make sure the DWG was not 
created from an AutoCAD 3D SOLID. AutoCAD 3D SOLIDS are not supported 
in DWG files for NX. 

To work around the issue, in AutoCAD, the 3D SOLID could first be converted to 
surfaces. Then the surfaces could be exported to the DWG file for import into 
NX. Or another translator could be used such as IGES or STEP.
