Convert Drafix .cad file to Autocad 2010.. need help

I have some old .cad files I would like to re-use. They were last saved in 1997/1998 with .cad file extension. I think I was using Drafix but not sure. Can anyone convert for me? (File attached)

Thanks,
Jack

Hi don't have a solution to conversion yet, but can tell you that your file was created in Drafix:

 

February 15, 1996

Drafix Windows CAD

IBM PC

DOS 3.0

MS 2.1

1989 Foresight Resources Corp.

 

Best of luck.

I have an old copy of Drafix running I will try to download the file and convert it an Autocad file.  Where can I contact you off the borad?

I was able to convert it to a .DWG and a DXF file  I hope it helps.

For information:

 

I think that AutoSketch 10 has included the facility for opening old Drafix files. Once open you can save as AutoCAD .dwg.

 

Glad you got it sorted.

Hello John,

 

Was wondering if you could convert a few files for me.  I have run into these .cad files also and can't find anything to open them short of spending $150-200 and they just aren't worth that to do it.  If you could I would really appreciate it!

 

Thanks

 

Patrick

 

P.S. I'll attach them later if are willing.

 

Thanks again!
