Error importing DWG v2018 into EVO 8 and WCS/UCS issue

Post by kikeblackberry » Mon Jun 04, 2018 3:28 pm

Hi,
As you can know last year Autodesk add or change the DWG file format for drawings made with AutoCAD v2018 (AutoCAD 2018 was released in April 2017). A Year later EVO 8 was launched but DWG v2018 format is not supported yet. A message whit “error importing the plan” is showed.

Maybe another issue is when importing a DWG file EVO does not take into account the world coordinate system (WCS) of the drawing. I think EVO must position its coordinate system align (in the same position) to the WCS of the drawing. This condition only can be met when into the DWG file is defined and named a user coordinate system (UCS).

I know aligning EVO coordinate system whit DWG coordinate system can be made manually but it can be a time saving if EVO can do it automatically or just in one click. Think about, in general, people works with WCS instead UCS.

Best regards,
