    How many people get DWG files that are generated from AutoCad. How often do you receive these types of files?

    We get various files generated out of AutoCad including DWG, DXF and EPS. We never have much luck and definitely do not have fun trying to work with them.

    If im not mistaken you can open DWG & DXF in Adobe Illustrator, and output or save to desired format.

    I do know that a lot of the AutoCAD formats have a lot of "lines" that are not connected.

    ...I print to a PDF file directly from Autocad...makes a clean file for import, and you can control all images, line-weights, etc. at the time of print.

    Autocad 2007 has a new DWG file format, so you will have to save down even for newer releases of vector software in order to import DWG/DXF files.
