I am havin some issues with importing .dwg files created in Autodesk Mechanical Desktop 2009 (mdt) into Inventor 2012. Here is what i am doing... (i used photobucket to upload the pics. If it dont work please let me know.)
#1. I find said .dwg, highlight it, click options, click import, click ok, and then click open.
#2. this window opens up...
I change "no saved configuration" to "default Mechanical Desktop configuration" and hit next
#3. then it changes to this...
Then i hit next
#4. then it changes to this...
then i hit next
#5. then that window closes and i get this popup...
What am i doing wrong? It worked when i had Inventor 2011, but then i had some computer issues, and had to reistall windows 7 (hard drive issues) and all of my programs. I didnt install Inventor 2011 initally, so i dont know what settings was changed, or if there are any that need changed.
I will admit, i am not too well educated in the ways of MDT, so please dumb it down for me.
Thank Yall in advanced!

i think you have to download the version of mdt 2009 to have it work 2012 inventor: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/item?id=13
I have MDT 2009 already installed on my computer, allong with inventor 2012. It used to work with Inventor 2011, and i have 2011 on my pc, but it wont operate cause of a licensing issue that i havnt had time to figure out.
There are two versions of Mechanical Desktop 2009. One works with Inventor 2009, 2010 and 2011 and the other works with 2012. I think you have the first version and need to download the one that works with 2012. I'm in the same boat as you.
Actually no, if you have MDT installed it should work with 2012, at least mine does on XP-64.
If not installed, then yes. You have to download the new installer or have IV 2011 or 2010 already installed on the machine to install MDT.
Nice to know, but I do not have Mechanical Desktop installed and the installer I have does not work with 2012 which is why Autodesk released a new installer. So now we have a installer that works with 2009, 2010 and 2011 and a installer that works with 2012. In my case Desktop is not installed because of new computers.
No, the one downloadable installer works for installations on machines with IV 2010,2011 & 2012.
I'm extracting the zip files now! It'll be loaded on a new lpatop with only IV 2012.
That is weird. When I go to http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/pc/item?id=13
Here is one of many files i have tried to import. When I installed mdt, at the time, I think, that i had only put inventor 2012 on. Eventually, through some confusion, i had installed inventor 2011. Now i cant open inventor 2011 cause of some licensing issues. I have never tried to figure out how to solve that issue, cause this should work.
