How large is the file?? I still have a copy of that old program and If it is something you can send to me I may be able to do the conversion to either .dxf windows meta-file or AutoCAD.. But beware there are some inherent problems in doing conversions out of the .CAD format depending on what you drew and how you drew it....
I noticed you mentioned you had a old copy of Drafix. I'm looking to open a bunch of old files (saved in Drafix proprietary .DXG format) using Drafix 1.0 (maybe 2.0). Would you be willing to share a copy of your old program so I can recover some data. I could destroy it after.
Thanks for whatever help you may provide.
I noticed on a posting that you had several older versions on Drafix. Might you be willing to part with any of them. I also have several versions going back to 3.0 for windows 3.1, but they don't run on newer machines. I have a group of drawings that were created in Cadultra and saved in .dwg format. Whenever you open them in the new verson(Quickcad) a bunch of the attributes, including the font on dimensions, changes. The only way I've been able to get around it is to open the drawing, manually change everything that needs changing, then save it in a new format, .cad. Problem is, I have, ';m guessing here, 1000 drawings.
i have some .CAD files on a CD from a customer, do you have a program that opens them? I just need to open and print them. I can't find a viewer or program to view and print. Can you help? I tried to attach an example but it says content type not allowed. Thanks for any help! Tracy
Zip up the file and send it to the group that way.
You're accessing the newsgroup from the net side,
You can try adding the newsgroup to your
mailer/newsgroup reader, (like Thunderbird, OE,
others) and see if you can upload the file that way.
