After the import of a DWG file in evo or after inserting objects into a project, it can happen that you no longer see the DWG file after zooming the project.

The CAD provides the default view so that the whole project is visible. When you upload for example a DWG file with the scale "kilometers", insert two objects several kilometers from each other and scale the DWG file to "centimeters", then the DWG file is so small and no longer visible. The scale applies only to the DWG file. The geometry in the project is not scaled.


During the DWG import you have no influence on the scale of a DWG file.

However, you can adjust the scaling and the positioning of the active DWG in our evo software after the import and select a suitable measuring unit.


You can also define or change the exact position of the drawing yourself by entering the desired data under 'Positioning'.
Additionally you can rotate the drawing by entering the desired rotation under 'Rotation'.
