CATIA V5 2D Import for AutoCAD is a CATIA V5 2D drawing file import plug-in for AutoCAD. This plug-in gives AutoCAD the ability to import 2D data from CATIA V5 drawing files. CATIA V5 2D Import for AutoCAD reads 2D geometric data from CATIA V5 drawings and creates corresponding 2D entities in the active AutoCAD drawing. Colors, layers, dimensions, hatches, etc. are maintained across the translation there by yielding an accurate AutoCAD representation of the CATIA V5 drawing. CATIA V5 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 "CATIAV52DImport" to the AutoCAD menu containing the newly added commands.
