After opening file no items display, no elements present.

Same file imports fine in AutoCAD.

Any suggestions?

thanks,
greg

ps. I can email the DWG file (2.2mb) to anyone that has a moment to try...

When opened in PlotMaker ... ?

Units?

Scale?

Solids?

Model space or Paper space?

...

Zip it before sending!

Archicad 8.1 (1410).

It's a timber-frame model - don't know details of how it is represented in Cadwork.

I understand from talking to the Cadwork author that there is a new version of Cadwork that includes an Archicad DWG export filter so am pursuing that as well.

The zip is too big for upload (541KB), perhaps I could email it to you directly?

thanks,
greg

Do you have a handy AutoCAD around? Or at least a VoloView? So that you can check whether it opens in the native Autodesk application?

Send it, no problem ...
