I have this project that I am working on and decided to upload a couple of the drawings from the package to Autodesk 360. They copied to the cloud no problem, but when I tried opening them up on my table using the AutoCAD 360 apt, they errored a couple of times then opened. When they opened, only the border and text opened. None of the lines in the drawing showed up. This happened on all three of them. One of them even after recopying to the cloud. I am currently using the base free version. Any thought as to why this is happening and how to fix it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The files are in a sub folder in the later link you said it should be in. These files came from a customer and I believe they were converted from Revit. They open fine in Autocad, just not in the 360.

Thanks for your feedback.
I deleted what I had on Autodesk 360 last night. I copied new files up to the cloud. When I went to AutoCAD 360 again, I got the same initial errors on the tablet like before. It continues to take a could of tries before cycling to 100%. This time I actually got more of the drawing to open showing the line art substance. Still not the complete drawing though.
I am going to do some experimenting to see if I create something from scratch and place it up there if the same sequence occurs. Stay tuned.
So, I created two new drawings starting with blank templates. The one I cut and pasted from an existing drawing a simple plate cross hatched with some leaders and text. Everything showed up in AutoCAD 360 except the chart. The second drawing I just drew some polygons and hatched a couple. Drew a polyline and no text. Everything showed up. Now, it still errored trying to open them and eventually did, so that part did not change. Being new to AutoCAD 360 I am not sure why the initial errors and why only portions show up. Everything is there in my AutoCAD session.
Bug in the software? With the basic this is what you get and if I pay money and upgrade all goes away? Not sure. That is why I am posting. Looking for answers.
Here is a screen shot of what I see inside of the apt of this file. This is one of them that most of the drawing appeared, but the chart did not.
I also noticed that when I copy these files into Autodesk 360 then call them up into AutoCAD 360, they disappear in the Autodesk 360. Is that the norm?
Hey Dean, Sorry it took me so long to get back to you.
What I can tell you is the other files besides being proprietary, were originally created in Revit then converted to AutoCAD. I am thinking based on what you have said in this thread, this app is not all the way there yet, and with that many translations and conversions, I guess I shouldn't be surprised that these issues are creeping up. I will try and reload the files up to Autodesk 360 and see if there is any changes/differences. Thank you for your efforts.
