Since the release of Illustrator 2021, we are unable to place or open .DXF files that are saved from Autodesk Fusion 360.
It appears that the version of DXF created by Fusion 360 is AC1014 or (R14). This dates back to pre 2000, and a lot of Fusion 360 customers are happy with this becuase they want file compatibility with very old CNC machines.
Has Adobe stopped supporting the ability to import DXF files of this age or is the DXF importer broken in the new version of Illustrator 2021 (V25) as it used to work in Illustrator 2020?
If Adobe has just dropped the ability to import these old files, a warning message would be nice instead of just opening or placing a blank document.
I would really like to know if there's a setting or something to open DXF files, this a real concern for my business?
The issue of not being able to open or import DXF files that are created in Fusion 360 has been identified and fixed by Adobe in the lastest update (25.0.1). It can out yesterday.
updated to latest version (25.0.1) and STILL CANNOT open DXF, the DXF import feature is the only reason I pay for Adobe.
Sounds great. So I updated today (Nov. 30) and I still get the "unknown format" error. So... now what?
I continue to have the same issue. I use the DXF export from fusion360 for import for laser cutting. It is not working anymore since the 2021 version. Latest update 25.1 does not fix the issue either.
Any update on this??? Having the same issue
