.dwg Import into Keyshot 7
« on: September 16, 2017, 09:24:22 am »
1. When importing a .dwg from AutoCAD Keyshot 7 is creating another object. Like a phantom object, sometimes a smaller copy of the layout. I have no issues selecting the unneeded object in the scene tab and deleting, but this is very odd, anyone know why it's doing that?
 2. When importing a .dwg from AutoCAD Keyshot 7 I receive window or critical errors. is this normal? From what I can tell it's all the 2D layers I have in my AutoCAD .dwg. Should I just uncheck show critical errors? It doesn't seem to have an affect on my rendering. Just curious!

Can you provide the file or an example? Is the phantom object another layer or a maybe an xref?

this is the .bip. Look in the scene tab, there is an object on 1, when I scale it up it appears to be a copy of my main models

Thanks for sharing. This definitely doesn't look right. I will speak with development about this.

Hi, I'm hoping I can get an update on this issue? I'm holding off upgrading our 30+ users to Keyshot 7 because of this issue. Let me know an estimated fix. Thanks so much

I've experienced a similar issue, where keyshot imports not only the model space, but the drawing space also which ends up creating a smaller version of some of the objects in my scene, seemingly scattered about. I get critical errors like you mentioned when Keyshot can't import referenced files such as images from the drawing space.
