    Default Error when opening DXF file generated by another program

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello!
    Does anyone face with the following error message after dxf file opening:
    "Internal Error: OCTTREE 2".
    I face with the mentioned problem when open dxf file generated by another application. The problem appeared in AutoCAD 2004, I mean, there were no such problems in AutoCAD 2000.
    Maybe anybody knows what is wrong with settings or maybe something wrong with dxf contents.
    The audit of the mentioned above DXF file returns the following result:
    Handleseed Value Too Low: 72 Set to max+1: 101F
    Maybe someone can tell what is it suppose to mean.

    Probably nothing is wrong, just that Acad 2004 has better error checking than Acad2000 ... consequently it's finding an error that was always there.

    Sorry, I did not mentioned, after "OCTTREE..." error autocad2004 crashes down . And it is wrong, I guess
    O.k. maybe someone knows what kind of an error inside mentioned dxf file can cause such problem.

    When that error shows up, type SORTENTS at the command line, and set it to 0. DO NOT move your mouse, or it will crash (in my experience).

    Kate, you just saved my life!
    Thanks a lot!
    I had the same experience about mouse moving and used keyboard to save mentioned dxf file as dwg, but the reason why it crashes was blurred.
    Thanks, I am really grateful.

    I think it has something to do with errors in the DXF -- 2000 would ignore them, but 2004 is smarter, and needs to have the errors fixed before it'll open the file.
