Default AutoCAD layout import problem


I've fallowed all the instructions for importing an AutoCAD drawing into Flexsim. Every line of the layout is visible on AutoCAD but when I import the .dxf in Flexsim, some important line is missing.
Is someone had the same problem ? How can I fix it ?

Thanks for your answer.

Make sure lines, especially curves, are exploded correctly and combine all of them into one layer.

Or, you can save you drawing into dwg. Flexsim 6 can import dwg. I think dwg importer is better than dxf importer.
