I am trying to import a DWG file (from Autodesk AutoCAD 2019) into QGIS using the Import tool (Project>Import/Export>Import files from DWG/DXF).
I have been following the steps as detailed in the QGIS user manual Ch 22.214.171.124 (https://docs.qgis.org/3.16/en/docs/user_manual/managing_data_source/opening_data.html?highlight=dwg#importing-a-dxf-or-dwg-file).
I create a geopackage file target package, specify the project CRS (epsg:3857) and select the DWG file. However when I select import I get a red error message that says the following:
Drawing import failed (). Another time I tried to import it using British National Grid CRS and the error message read:
Drawing import failed (unsupported version).
I have also tried selecting an existing geopackage as the target package but this results in a second error message appearing in addition to the first which reads:
Could not open layer list ().
Does anyone know how to fix this? Is it because it is a newer version of AutoCAD that created the DWG or?
