  • Offset: The dropdown menu will be populated with the point clouds in the scene. Choose a point cloud to apply its offset vector to the imported CAD drawing.
  • Import as reference: DXF files can be imported as reference layers, which allows high-performance rendering of a large number of CAD objects. DXF files with a total size of above 20 megabytes are automatically imported as reference. The Object List icon for a reference layer is .
