Just a quick help needed from the experts of the forum!!

I have exported a DXF file of my layout from ADS to Autocad. But the circuit elements comes as an in object in Autocad. How can those object can be converted into polyine object (I mean individual line can be selected and modified in autocad)?

Any idea??

Hi,

I think you should explode all objects in Autocad and do conversion to polylines manually (basically get rid of pieces you don't need). It is a long and slow process, errors are easily made, I did it a number of times.
