If you work with 2D design data or legacy files and Fusion 360, importing large amount of DXF files fro downstream arrangement, nesting, and manufacturing can be a long process. The DXF Import Utility for Fusion 360 helps streamline this process by combining what used to be several commands for each DXF into one single command that can work on large batches of DXFs at once! Close gaps, automatically extrude profiles, assign a material, and lay out each DXF in a consumable way. Each DXF is placed in its own component, making the results ideal for Arrange or Nesting with the Nesting and Fabrication Extension. Download and install the DXF Import Utility today for huge improvements to your DXF workflows!

Note that due to the high variability of DXF standards, you will likely need to play around with the settings before things work just as expected. Make sure you are in parametric modeling mode (Capture Design History is ON https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/fusion-360/troubleshooting/caas/sfdcarticles/sfdcarticles/How-to-turn-on-Design-History-in-Fusion-360.html) to take full advantage of the ability to edit each step of the import process!
