I have tried to load a custom line type from Autocad 2013 to Inventor 2013, through Edit Laver-->Line type -->Other --> Load, but it doesn't appear in the drop-down list. I have read that previous Inventor releases coudn't work with autocad custom or complex line types. Is it still like that?
Thanks in advance,
Solved! Go to Solution.
have you tried to export the line type to .lin file from Autocad and then open that file in Load Line Types dialog? Your type should then be listed there.
You can also simply create the .lin file, it's a simple text format. For examples you can look in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor 2015\Compatibility\Support\*.lin
Hope this helps.
thanks for your response. I have tried a different solutions:
Maybe I am doing something wrong? Or is there another way?
Well, I took a closer look at the code and yes, we DO NOT support loading the complex line types (those with shx fonts etc.).
Looks like your type is complex. If so, I can't help here much. If not send me your .lin file to martin.bernatATautodesk.com and I will take a look.
