Curved Lines appear as zig-zags after beeing imported as DXF

Hi! 

 

After importing a .dxf that initially had curved lines in fusion these curves appear like rough zig-zag lines. I ve tried to export the dxf from vectorworks in all kind of different ways but the problem stays the same. What could be the issue here? Thanks in advance!

 

Picture 1 shows the drawing in Vectorworks.

Picture 2 shows how fusion displays it after importing as dxf.

Hi,

1. please share the origin file (Fusion > VectorWorks)   > DXF?

2. please share the export file (VectorWorks > Fusion)

I attached the exported vectorworks drawing and the fusion 360 file. Thank you!

Hi,

The DXF file could not be opened in ACAD and other applications.
The sketch also looks the same in an online viewer as it does in Fusion Import.
Upload the DXF file directly (not zipped).

When I open your dxf it's made from 98 curves, lines and arcs. What is it supposed to be up from?

You first sentence in this thread is a bit vague, was the sketch (DXF) initially made in Fusion? Also don't attach pictures just paste them into your messages.

The reason the sketch looks jagged is because it's a long way from the origin. Looks like it's about 3,000Km from the origin!

When moved nearer the origin it looks like this.

In the initial vectorworks drawing that I used to export the dxf the origin was indeed VERY far from the drawing. After changing the origin to a point in the drawing, exporting it as dxf and importing it into fusion the curves are now displayed correctly. THANKS!
