Hi there,

Hi there,

Independently of the DWG issue, please, update your program:
http://forums.punchsoftware.com/WebX/.fad6631

Importing a DWG file: Sometimes, importing a DWG file can be tricky. For this reason, I developed a free step by step tutorial. You can find it in my website:
http://www.punchhelpers.com/acadtutorial.html
Or, you can download my free e-book: Learning Punch Software (R): Mini - Tutorials
In addition, you can check my Facebook Note #9 that includes a sample file for testing purposes.

Visualizing in 3D: the DWG floor plan that you imported is a 2D plan, composed by 2D lines and shapes. For this reason, you can see it in 2D mode, but you can't see it in 3D mode.
So, in order to visualize the project in 3D you must convert the 2D elements to Punch components. For example => select a line => Property bar (right of the screen)=> Convert to => Wall.
You will find more about the "Convert To" process in the User Guide (page 183).
If you are interested, my all in one e-book for your version: Learning Punch Software (R): Training, Tools & Tutorials - 2nd Edition includes step by step tutorials about this subject.
Or, if you prefer, File Conversions is one of the services that I provide. Check the "Our Services" page in my website

Hope this helps! :-)
