Q - question

I can't copy/paste a block from AutoCAD into an Inventor drawing.

A - answer With a simple Copy/Paste function I can paste - directly from an AutoCAD DWG to an Inventor IDW - any shape, geometry without problems. But if this shape is inside a block, some blocks cannot be pasted this way. Why?

Check if your block contains any special AutoCAD objects/entities or if it is a parametric dynamic block. Also, make sure the block does not use multiple nesting (a block within a block). If it does, simplify it to a standard single-level block and repeat the copy/paste into Inventor.
