Issue Details

I'm importing DXF files created in CAD software into Ultiboard. However, when I open them, I get non-sense lines, wrong geometries or incorrect scaling. How can I fix this?


As many file types, DXF has also different versions. Save your DXF file according to your Ultiboard version you want to import it from:

DXF is an exchange format for content of AutoCAD Drawing Files (DWG). The DXF format specification is maintained and has been openly published by AutoDesk. The documentation was first released in 1982, and has been updated frequently as the AutoCAD product has been enhanced. The DXF Reference documentation is available through AutoCAD Help.
