Then of course you need another program to convert the dxf into IGES since
many high end CAD programs don't import dxf and of the ones that do, well you
will find that there are many flavors of DXF. The problem is that if you zoom
into the converted file you will see most likely an unusable zig zag pattern
where the bit maps go around a curve for example. Then you will just pick
some of the points and reconstruct the geometry using lines, arcs, splines
etc. that are available on your CAD system. And wondering if it was worth all
the bother. That at least is my experience so far.
