I found a fix, import CAD drawing into Prime 1.3 and then export, this exported file can now be imported in Prime 2.0, renders normally.

At least archiving of controller configurations works,

Prime 2.0 is still beta I think

Having the same issue here.

Guess we'll just have to wait for 2.1 ;-)

(I'm doing a new install so exporting from 1.3 is too painful TBH)

CAD file format must be AutoCAD version 2010 or earlier. Before you save a CAD file, ensure the following:

Zoom images to maximum.

Remove  unwanted layers from the CAD files, that is, layers that add  unnecessary artifacts to CAD files and layers that do not provide  significant information about the image on the CAD files.
