Ok, I saved the Inventor Fusion file as an .sat file. When I try to import the file into AutoCAD 2012 I get an error that says, "Youhave selected an unsupported DGN file. Only V7 and V8 DGN files are supported.". Any suggestions?
DGN is a Microstation format, and Fusion doesn't export that file type.
Have you installed SP2 for Fusion?
I have SP2 installed on my computer, I have remade the parts and saved them as .sat files. I next open up a new autocad 2012 dwg and try to import the file I get the following error (see attachment). So I am open to suggestions on this matter.
Here are the three files that I imported to ACAD.
Can you post one of the SAT files you created?
Please correct the highlighted errors and try again.
It did not look like my last post went through, so here it is again. I get the error above whenever I try to post the .sat file.
I think you need to zip the file before you post it.
I am having the same issue...parts created in Fusion cannot be inserted into AutoCAD because they are all called ACAD_FREEWAY_COMPONENT_1. I cannot insert more than one part in Fusion, either. I'm sure there are workarounds, but the main takeaway is that Fusion and AutoCAD are only marginally compatible.
I have partially managed to get around this by exploding each inserted part and using the RENAME command to change the parts from ACAD_FREEWAY_COMPONENT_1 to a unique name.
I'm quite enthralled with the idea that I can use an Inventor interface to work with DWG files, but there are definitely some kinks to work out.
This is an issue in Fusion that the development team is investigating. In the meantime, the workaround is to save files in a neutral format, import them into another Autodesk product, and then save as DWG.
