View attached CAD (dxf) file
Our CAD guy attaches .dxf files to each job, but in the office we can't view the files because we don't have CAD software installed.
Sometimes it's useful to see the drawing as a reference. How can we do this?
You view and print dxf and dwg files as part of a Job Activity Packet. – if you add an Attached CAD file to a packet, it will show up and be printable.
For info on using Job Activity Packets, see Related Articles below.
