I am trying to import a set of simple lines on an autocad drawing into Illustrator CS5; I have done this previously without issue by saving the CAD file as a 2004 .dwg file. This is then placed into Illustrator without scaling and usually works perfectly. However this time the placed files are massive in comparison to a piece of a3 paper on Illustrator (the drawings are 215mm in length). I have annotated the files and they are to correct size, the scale is also set to 1:1 on Autocad.
Any help would be amazing, I have recently bought CS5.5 and am keen to get into the forum side of the suite.
(Oh and Happy Xmas!)
Been busy joining, just back from the shop.
However this time the placed files are massive in comparison to a piece of a3 paper on Illustrator (the drawings are 215mm in length).
Could you elaborate on that?
I am afraid everyone else is busy joining in other ways.
Past 9 PM here.
So basically I have drawn flatware on Autocad, they are 215mm in length; however when placed into illustrator onto a piece of a3 paper the drawings scale themselves up much larger.
This is the only CAD scaling issue thread I have been able to find, and that is quite different.
The others are still busy joining or stuffing themselves or something.
23.25 PM here.
When Illy behaves strangely, or maybe rather not at all, she may need a shake up to become fully awake. You may do that by snatching away her present preferences of behaviour, which may be done at different levels, the lowest one being to put her to sleep and waking her up again.
Joining is carpentering without metal fasteners.
