This tutorial will cover how to bring a .dwg AutoCAD file into ArcMap and how to export ArcMap layers for use in AutoCAD. Adding an AutoCAD file to an ArcMap Project AutoCAD files can be directly added to an ArcMap project. When saving your .dwg file in AutoCAD make sure that there are no spaces in the file name, for example Autocadfile.dwg. Save the .dwg in one of your ArcMap project folders. In this case we will add an Ordnance Survey .dwg file to our ArcMap project. If the CAD file is simple, for example on one layer, you are finished. As with many CAD files, the OS file is not simple, being composed of several layers of data. ArcMap combines all these layers, including annotation, into one group layer, composed of 5 categories: annotation, point, polyline, polygon, multipatch.
