Have you pushed/pulled the 2D into 3D? Are you trying to paint 2D faces. Can you share a picture of the issues you are having? Hard to tell from your post.

yes i'm trying to paint 2d faces. here is a picture of what i'm working on.8166 the problem i'm having is that i can't just import and start painting it's like i'm going to have to redraw the whole thing.!?

Looks like your faces are not filled in. SU has issues with this on DWGs from time to time. You can at times redraw a line and it will fill in. There is a RUBY script that can help IIRC.

yeah but sometimes times it fills in areas that i don't want filled in. Not familiar with RUBY scripts, what are those??

Add-ons like LISP routines for Acad. There is one already there..
Tools - Utilities - Create Face. See if it is there.

there is no option for utilities under "tools"

Ok, I must have added that one. You can probably retrace over a single line and the face should fill in.

ok cool, i just watched a video on ruby scripts and tried to download "make faces" and it won't let me install???

You should be able to copy the contents to the plugins folder, weird
