Factory Overlay (ACad file)

119 Views, 1 Replies

All,

 

I am trying to insert a AutoCad file as a Overlay into Factory.

 

The problem I'm having is the text in the Autocad file scales up and becomes a thick font.....I can't see or use the geometry under the text (text becomes a thick wall above with the geometry below.

 

The text seems to have a life of it's own..otherwise the geometry is fine.

 

I know there are layer settings that can be turned on/off within factory.

 

I created a new file and stripped out the text from the AutoCad file to be able to use in Factory.....

 

Is there a solution to this issue?

 

Thank you in advance,

Bill

The issue you are having may be related to the font type you have set in AutoCAD. 

If this is still an issue for you, try using font like Romans to see if the issue is the same.

 

If it is, do you have all Updates and or Service packs applied? What version of InventorFactory are you using? Can you upload the .dwg file?
