QCAD unable to open DXF files

Postby Webbo » Thu Jul 28, 2011 11:02 am

I have bought QCAD Version: [Professional]
Date: Jun 11 2009
(c) 2001-2008 by RibbonSoft GmbH,
Andrew Mustun
Modules: None
Qt Version: 4.5.1

running on Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1

I have DXF files created from DWG files using the Teigha File Converter. version using Qt version 4.7.1
I open the file with QCAD, there is no error message, but there is nothing on the graphic screen, there are no layers in the layer list and no objects in the object list. Indeed there is no indication that any data at all was read in. I have tried converting the DWG file to various DXF formats but the result is always the same.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

It could be that the file only contains entities that are not supported by QCAD (that's mainly the case for 3D entities and some rarely used other entities).

Please send us the file for verification to info [at] ribbonsoft [dot] com
