    Hmm, I can't say for sure. I use VW 11 and have never had to import 3d DWG/DXF files. there is an import IGES (3d only) file option in 11, anyway you could make that happen?

    Check and see what way your saving the file. VW likes to see DXF Binary files as opposed to DXF text

    Nothing worked, i think it just may be a bug in copy that i messd up somewhere . . . o well. I just bought VW12 at LDI (very sweet), so i should be getting that soon. For those of you anyway who havn't checked it out, it now does support the haze effect with beams.
