- You can't import 3D shape
- It's better clean the cad file , leaving only the needed geometry before importing the file.
With ECAM you can import 2D geometries from DXF / DWG files.
The XZ is the lathe plane.
Choose the file you want to import.
Just after geometries import, a side screen with the most common operation will appear on the left screen.
You can open this screen also from MENU - >DRAW -> ADJUST IMPORTED GEOMETRIES
The applied changes will affect only selected entities.
Select all geometries : It select all the visible entities on the scene.
Clear selection : All the entities are de-selected
Invert selection : Selected entities will be de-selected and other way round
Change plane : Move the entities to XY or ZX PLANE
Scale : Entities will be scaled by selected factor. You can choose from common factor or define the value on your own
Rotate : Use the button to rotate selection of +90° or -90° . Otherwise insert a rotation value and press the check mark button.
Flip : Flip selection vertically or horizontally
Pick origin point : Move the entire selection , so the world coordinate zero , will be the selected point.
