To use CAD data in SMS, use the following steps:

1. Import CAD data files.
  1. Verify the CAD file type is readable by SMS before importing it. SMS can import DXF and DWG files.
  2. Use the File | Open... command to launch the Open dialog (or drag and drop) to import the CAD files.
The data should load in layers into the Project Explorer.
2. Review and edit data.
  1. Check data to see that it shows up in the Project Explorer and any feature objects are in the Graphics Window.
3. Convert CAD data.
1. Convert CAD to Map coverage.
  1. Right-click on the CAD dataset in the Project Explorer and select Convert | CAD → Map.
  2. Use the options in the Clean Options dialog.
  3. A new map coverage with converted CAD data will appear in the map module.
2. Convert CAD faces to 2D scatter triangles.
  1. Right-click on the CAD dataset in the Project Explorer and select Convert | CAD Faces → 2D Scatter Triangles.
3. Convert CAD points to 2D scatter.
  1. Right-click on the CAD dataset in the Project Explorer and select Convert | CAD Points → 2D Scatter.
  2. Name the scatter set in the New Scatter Set dialog.
  3. A new scatter set with converted CAD data will appear in the scatter module.
4. Export to CAD Data.
Project data can be converted to CAD data.
  1. Right-click on an empty space in the Project Explorer and select Convert to CAD.
  2. Save the CAD data file.
  3. CAD data will be loaded into the Project Explorer.
