With the Entity From Primitives command, two-dimensional drawings saved as dxf/dwg are converted into ideCAD objects. Drawings such as axes, columns, beams, walls and shearwalls must be drawn on their own layers. Drawings on the selected layers are converted to objects.
In the conversion process, the outer borders of the drawings of elements such as columns and shearwalls must be closed.
