problems with drawing roamertop27 on 04/07/2022 12:55
this is a poor quality reproduction which has multiple issues with fonts and scale of fonts, as well as incomplete lines and shapes. It needs to be properly formatted for DWG or DFX
Maybe your problem? RalfMetzger on 04/07/2022 13:48
Really can't see your problem. I opened the plan with two professional CAD programs and at first glance I can't see any of the problems mentioned.
Perhaps you are not using a real CAD program?
not his problem yours roamertop27 on 09/01/2023 07:16
I had the same issue opening the DXF file in TurboCad 19 professional, I think if you used AutoCad you need to use different scalable fonts so it can be saved properly as a DXF
