Importing 3D DWG to Onshape

daniel_cookdaniel_cook Member Posts: 47 PRO
Hi all,

A client has sent me a 3D DWG - can open in a DWG viewer and it rotates, etc so it's drawn in 3D. I am not sure if it was actually from a parametric 3D software or just drawn in 3D. Is there a way to tell, and then is there a way to convert it for importing into Onshape?

    Hi @daniel_cook - 3D DWG is not supported, but your client should be able to export in ACIS format (*.sat) and that should work fine.
    Thanks Neil - unfortunately it's not an option for me to ask them but I have colleagues who run Autodesk so I'll just hand ball it to them!

    You could also consider this solution for DWG 3D information.  Graebert has a DWG solution in our App Store for situations like this:
