CATIA V4 2D Import for AutoCAD reads 2D geometric data from CATIA V4 drawings and creates corresponding 2D entities in the active AutoCAD drawing. Colors, layers, dimensions, hatches, etc. are maintained across the translation thereby yielding an accurate AutoCAD representation of the CATIA V4 drawing. CATIA V4 2D Import for AutoCAD is very easy to use. Once installed, it must be loaded into the AutoCAD environment. There are simple instructions for this in the ReadMe file. Once loaded it adds new commands to AutoCAD's existing commands and a new submenu called "CATIAV42DImport" to the AutoCAD menu containing these newly added commands.
