"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Cause: VCarve is unable to interpret the DWG 2018 file format.

Solution: Resave the drawing in AutoCAD to the DWG 2013 format.

This can be done by:
  1. Selecting Save As from the AutoCAD drop down menu
  2. Selecting the file type in the bottom right, and changing to DWG 2013
  3. Click Save


Hope this helps,
