2D Pattern (AI/PDF) Import/Export

Comments

  • nadiaking

    When importing, it says 'This is an unsupported file type, When saving the AI file, please check the option 'create PDF compatible file'. I re-saved my file making sure the option was checked and it still came up with the same error message.I also tried to import the same pattern as a PDF and this did not work either.

    Can't export my file either. It says "Failed to export the AI file. The file may be open in another application." I have closed all of the other applications, but still, it just doesn't want to save it.

    I import DXF files from Rhino to clo with this layer structure and it works pretty well

    Should the pattern pieces be individual .ai files?

    Anyone figure this out, how can you edit the PDF out of CLO3D 6 with illustrator with out getting that message file not recognized. I can open any other PDF in illustrator.

    Could anyone help, please? Having exactly the same problem as described here three years ago, but I wasn't able to find any solution
