Imported DXF not visible



We've imported a dxf into a project but it's not visible except when we hover over it in the layer menu. Is this a glitch?

Yes - unfortunately we had some issues with rendering of DXF-imported geometry today. A fix was just deployed, so this should work as expected again. Let us know if you still see any issues.

It seems we have the same problem, two days ago all was fine. When can we expect the fix to take effect?

@leslieingFJ93F We apparently had two different problems around this. A fix has been deployed for both. Can you confirm things are working as expected again?

Hey Henrik,


It was fixed, Hoewever the displayed line width is a lot wider than before. Best would be an option to control the displayed line width, if possible. The dxf is hard to read because of this.

Was your DXF rescaled (e.g. change of units) after it was imported?


Are you able to provide a sample DXF file where you see a clear problem around this, which we can use to improve the experience?

I exported the drawing from autocad in 1:1 scale, and then imported in Forma in mm.

I can reproduce the problem here. You can workaround it by exporting your DXF in meters (if that's possible, I'm not sure). We're looking into a proper fix, but not sure we'll be able to do so before Monday.

Thanks for looking into it, Monday is perfect! In the meantime I will try exporting in different ways/sizes.

@henrik_steenJL382 did this ever get resolved? I'm having a similar issue but am testing whether I can adapt the units within the dwg/dxf before exporting.
