I have a bunch of items that I built in DesignSpark I saved them as DXF files how do I convert them from drawings to objects in Onshape?

    The way to build 3D parts in Onshape from 2D profiles stored in DXF files is to start a sketch in a Part Studio and use the Import DXF or DWG command. The lines/arcs etc. in your DXF will become sketch entities. From there you can add constraints as needed and use the sketch to build features.
