Work with Drawing Files







You can open drawing files in DWG or DXF or DWF formats. When you open a drawing file, you can change the view by panning, zooming, rotating 2D and 3D objects, or restoring a saved view. To manage visual complexity, you can turn layers on and off when needed. You can access two working environments with Model and Layout tabs.
