I have a .dxf file to convert to .shp. Using ArcMap I've added the .dxf and tried exporting to .shp (various types, polyline, point, polygon) and also tried exporting to a gdb. For the most part it works but some of the original polyline (or polygon) files come into ArcMap as points. Has anyone come across this problem before and know of a solution?
Okay, so using the Autodesk plugin on google drive I've found I can select the features in question, then explode them. When I open them in arcGIS they are no longer points but instead the polyline features.
update I belive in CAD lingo, the features I was talking about are in fact blocks. By exploding these you can win when importing to Arc
