Nikhil,

according to https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?source=subscription&n=CS134024:

  • Creo 2.0 supports AutoCAD import up to 2010
  • Creo 3.0 supports AutoCAD import up to 2013

On the other side AutoCAD 2011 uses the same native file format as AutoCAD 2010. See http://autodesk.blogs.com/between_the_lines/autocad-release-history.html

Therefore it is difficult to say, what is going on. You can contact PTC Support, if you want.

The easiest & fastest workaround for this is to save in a earlier version of autocad(save as -> files of type[change here]).

Nikhil,

can you upload your DWG file ? See How to upload Creo (or other) files

If it contains secret info, can you provide some test file ?

Hi Martin,

Can you please check and let me know.

Nikhil,

if you open BRDC1-C.dwg or Drawing2.dwg in Notepad and check first six character, you will see AC1027 code. This code tells us, that DWG format belongs to AutoCAD 2013, 2014, 2015. Therefore you cannot open DWG files in Creo 2.0. Creo 3.0 opens files successfully.

Martin mentioned that it would work with ACAD 2010 file format. So you could download DWG TrueView (Free Download from Autodesk) and covert it back to a 2010 format. More work but, it should work....

Nikhil,

I have opened 3303793_04 JTY-GDM-SIGA-DSC...V1.dwg file in Creo 2.0 successfully. Before opening I renamed it to v1.dwg.
