DXF export / import in Catia

If we export attached .wrk as dxf, and import in 3D Catia(like Autocad, solidworks), we can see the holes solids without problems.  But we see the traces in Catia in pieces (not joined). 

In .wrk data there are holes and traces.

The view of catia is attached.

How can we solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your question.

Please remember that Catia (along with most 3D tools have limited DXF importers) are very strict on how/what entity types are supported.  I would recommend the following:

  1. Try different DXF Export options to see what works best.
  2. Export as a 3D Step file (menu: File / Export / STEP...)?  Lets FAB do the work of creating 3D breps that should easily import into Catia.

Let me know your results and if that helped.

Best regards,
