Hey guys,  I have some AutoCAD drawings that are not displaying properly in ArcGIS 9.3 (ArcView license).  This is especially apparent with vegetation, in which the trees are displayed as 'backward '3s'.  I am able to get the features to draw properly in AutoCAD 2008 through copying two .shx files, 'Tmodelf' and 'Symbol', into the 'Program_Files' folder located in the base of the network drive (e.g. F:\Program_Files\Tmodelf.shx), however I have not been able to solve this for displaying the features properly in ArcGIS. 

Has anyone had the same issue and is there a way to incorporate these .SHX files into ArcGIS or is there a previous thread discussing such an issue?  Any help is greatly appreciated

For reference, I have attached a Microsoft Word Document containing the screen shots of the same area in ArcGIS and AutoCAD to illustrate my issue.


Thanks,

Anant,

I would contact technical support if my firm had a current maintenance or paid support subscription for the license for ArcView 9.3 software that I am using.  Until they upgrade to ArcGIS 10, I am unable to contact support and, as a result, need use this message board for assistance with any issues that arise.

Thanks,
Michael
