My issue is the lack of speed and responsiveness in Inventor when I insert a (piece of an) autocad dwg.
Is there some else with this issue?
I had this issue on several machines the last couple 'o years.

I never copy or insert (with provided tools or manual copy/paste)  dwg  (or part of it) into inventor, because it just kills inventor in time, and even small things become so slow it's impossible to work. Not even symbols, nothing works. I'm speaking for versions 2010, 11, 13.

Ok, the only thing that works ok, is inserting dwg layout in FDS 2013.

So in all those years, at company where i work, we redraw everything. So we start with clean parts, assys, idws.


But if anybody has any solution, i would also like to hear it :cathappy:
