Error Importing DWG Files


  • The DWG file I am trying to import is not showing.
  • The DWG file I am trying to import is crasing the cad application (cad.exe or RealCAD.exe).


1) Go to Help > About

Make sure you have installed the latest RealCAD DWG Translator file.

Go under Help > Program Updates and make sure you install the latest version.

2) Look in the Composed Drawing section of RealCAD / LANDWorksCAD / ArborCAD after you have imported the file. Some drawings produced by AutoCAD users are drawn only in Paper/Layout Space and will not show up in the TOP view.

Send your DWG file to and they will test it for you. You will need to be a support subscriber.
