Importing DWG files into Impression

Importing DWG files into Impression


In AutoCAD, I setup an 11x17 paperspace layout.  In Essentials, I setup my page setup to 11x17.  I import the CAD 11x17 paperspace layout, but the CAD file is not inserted within the white 11x17 canvas.  For some odd reason, the CAD file is located to the bottom left corner off the canvas?  Can someone help me or explain how I can fix this issue?


Importing X-Ref files


I've exported a Revit floor plan into a CAD file.  I'd like to import the CAD file into Impression, but the file has X-refs. Impression has "out of memory issues" during import.  I've attempted this process a few times, and for some reason, the import process would work.  I feel this is a hit or miss during the import process.  Has someone experienced this issue?  If so, do you recommend that I bind the x-ref files, explode all lines (including blocks)?  I checked my hardware spec's, and my system meets hardware recommendations.
