When importing AutoCad drawings created from Inventor Sheet Metal flat patterns into Enroute V 5.1, arcs are converted to 2 to 4 straight line segments.  Currently using Autocad 2016 & Inventor 2016.  Any ideas on why?  I have also saved the cad drawings down to earlier versions, but still does the same.

I have had similar problems try some different cad
formats such as .dxf or maybe .eps.
Let me know if that helps!!!

look in the settings for the 'Export' command, especially Inventor may have a setting for 'convert curves/arcs to line segments'  I have had pretty good success with R2010 Dxfs.
