Hi Community,

This morning, I imported a dxf file as I did yesterday and found the dxf file imports the object smaller than it supposed to be. I cannot be sure if there's any Illustrator SW update through the night... or I changed some settings accidentally. Now it imports the dxf file with smaller than it supposed to be, placing the object at the left bottom corner. (screenshot below).

 

Does anyone know I can resolve this issue?

screen shots below

 

step 1. dxf file (created in Fusion360)

[object size 54 mm by 72 mm]

The scatch exported through Fusion 360 dxf file

Step 2. import the dxf file into 100mm x 100mm Illustator document using follwing setup

Step3. the file is imported with 'wrong size' and the position of the object is left bottom corner

Yesterday, the import was in 'proper / expected size' with object place at the center of the document.

Today, the size becomes samller and the object placed at the left bottom corner.

[supposed to be 54 mm x 72 mm, but imports 21.054 x 27.404 mm]

Anyone knows the solution for this?
