How can the JIC symbol drawing file for ProWORX be modified with AutoCad
Facts and Changes
If the drawing is saved as a .dwg file after editing it with AutoCad, ProWORX is not be able to see the file when the IO drawing is generated.
Causes and Fixes
ProWORX 32 and ProWORX NxT IO generator drawings are .dxf exported drawing. These drawings can be edited for custom additions using AutoCad.
Autocad allows the drawing to be saved as an older (i.e., 'AUTOCAD 2004, DXF (dxf)', 'R12/LT2 DXF (dxf)' file format). The DXF format must be used to save the drawing. If the drawing is saved as a .DWG file, ProWORX will not be able to see the file because it is looking for a .dxf file.
To save the drawing in AutoCad 2005, click on File\Save and selected 'AutoCAD R12 DXF' as the format.
To save the drawing in AutoCad R1, click on File\Export and selected 'AutoCAD R14 DXF' as the format.
