Need repairing DWG. Can't open a saved DWG file in sketchbook Designer.

Hello I'm using student version of Autodesk Sketchbook Designer but it keeps crashing and today I cannot open a saved file. This file is very important to me so please help. I have tried open it with Autocad, DWG trueview and inventor but no luck. The file has been attached if anyone want to have a look at.

Please help

Welcome to Autodesk Forums!

 

885 KB is pretty small for a DWG file.

Search your computer to see is there is an idk2.bak file.

 

Your file opened here but there is nothing in it.

No Blocks, Layer 0, only the expected Text and Dim Styles.

QSELECT returned that there are no objects in the current drawing.

Is DWG the native file format for Sketchbook Designer?

 

You say "tried open it with Autocad, DWG trueview and inventor but no luck."

What does that mean, that the .DWG file will not open (crashes) or there is nothing in it?

Your attached drawing opens fine here, and DBLIST reveals there are no entites in it, and not much more. It looks like a standard empty template drawing.

The file is actually done in Sketchbook Designer and saved as Autocad DWG 2010 because it doesn't have native file name. Files that are done in sketchbook, even with the .DWG will not open in any other programs except Dketbook designer. My problem is that I cant open it in Sketchbook anymore.

**Edit**
The file will open in DWG viewer but it will appears as nothing in it. Try to open it with Sketchbook Designer, the program will crashes right away. Thank you.

One more time, from a third person: there is nothing inside the file you posted, regardless of what application is used.
Emtpy. Dead. Nothing in it.

Go find another DWG file that is substantially larger in size than this one.

Oh, so this is not natively a dwg file?
Can you try posting the original sketchbook designer file?
