Adobe Illustrator

Illustrator files import just fine but show all layers at once.

Unknown:

  • Are patterns from Illustrator displayed correctly?
  • Do clipping masks work?

SVG

Does not work

EPS

Often don't work.

DXF (CAD)

Are scaled wrong. Possible that RDWorks does not check the unit type and chooses a default, likely in mm. Possibly if we figure out which unit is being used we can set the files to that prior to import. We can also figure out a table with the percentage scale needed to adjust.

From https://www.autodesk.com/techpubs/autocad/acad2000/dxf/header_section_group_codes_dxf_02.htm:
