I have a lot of dwg and dxf files and unfortunately Shapr3D cannot import these directly (seems a highly requested feature however!).
So I am testing conversions with two Mac programs: FreeCAD and MoI. I am converting a very simple 2D rectangle and the conversions seems fine with both programs and either STEP or IGES format, exact dimensions are mantained and every segment is selectable once imported into Shapr3D.
However there are some strange behaviours:
- Closed shapes are not recognized, and I found no way to connect the segments to form a closed rectangle (for extrusions);
- Even stranger: the imported lines are placed into a group called “Imported”. If I try to translate I cannot select this group of 8 lines, but if I select every line individually I can translate them!
What is going on?
