Hi,

 

and can you open it now with LT again (whatever version you mean as the header says LT2010 and in the message text you wrote LT2013)?

Hi,

 

Two options I see now:

  • a) open the drawing in LT2010 and save it back to DWG2007 or DWG2004 format. Then try to open this file in 2013
  • b) load the drawing in LT2010, then WBLOCK just the modelspace-entities to a new drawing, can you open this new drawing in 2013?

 

If all fails can you upload that drawing?

The dwg has been saved in 2004/2007 format, but still it does not open in AutoCAD 2013. I am attaching the file for your reference.

Hi,

 

First yes, I can reproduce the problem with 2013 (x64 German SP1.1).

 

when I open your drawing with AutoCAD 2012 I get the message that this file is not created by an Autodesk product. That sounds for me like anything modifies the DWG that is not AutoCAD (before you uploaded it here).

Do you have any applications running on top of AutoCAD?

 

I guess you have conflicts with AEC-objects in the drawing. So what I did: I opened your drawing in 2012, then run command _-EXPORTTOAUTOCAD ==> and that drawing can now be opened in 2013.

I'm sorry not to know it that command is available in LT. ;(

 

Please find the converted drawing attached.

Hi,

 

>> what is the solution?

You should verify where you got the drawing from (or items you used in the drawing) as there are AEC-objects in the drawing that have to be cleaned up to plain AutoCAD-geometry types.

If the command _-EXPORTTOAUTOCAD does not exist in your LT you can't do anything else. I guess you got this drawing from someone usign ACA or MEP, and this user should then use the command before sending the data to you.

Yes, -EXPORTTOAUTOCAD option is available in AutoCAD LT which will resolve the issue. Thanks again..
