Need some help aligning CAD file in desktop using a conversion factor. Anyone know how to do this?
Assuming by "conversion factor" you want to move, scale, and rotate the data to match another dataset, you can create a world file that has the same name as the CAD file, in the same directory, with 2 known coordinate pairs representing the CAD x,y and the dataset's corresponding x,y.
