Unable to import DXF in Pattern Editor

#1 Post by godageprasad09 » 01 Aug 2020, 09:32

Hello
I am trying to import dxf file in pattern editor, in import window I can see the expected symbol. But when I select covert to Top pads or Top Signal, I am just getting very tiny dot. Is something wrong with my procedure or problem with DXF file? I have attached my dxf file.

Please can anybody help me ?
Thanks in Advance!!

Please send DXF file for verification. You didn't attach the file.

Actually I tried with board outline dxf also, but same observation.
Direct dxf file import not supported, so attached file with zip.
DXFs.rar

Just a guess, but in the 'import' dialog the 'DXF Units:' can be either inches or mm. If it was set to inches and should be mm then it will import 25.4 times smaller than intended. Happened to me btw.

After some digging it seems that problem with DXF files.
Can we set dimension ratio while importing DXFs?
