You can have Acad running, but the .dxf file you want to load in lcam must be closed in Acad...........

I have LCam 2.02 and Mach3, 065.
Here's what I did this time:
I opened an Autocad generated .dxf in Laxycam, it opens fine, I make my changes, clean, optomize etc and I saved the file to my desktop. before closing I Post code to Mach3 and it goes to Mach3, everything woirks fine.
The problem is when I close that Lcam file and open it up again without quiting Lazycam, or even if I quit and start over, it appears to open fine in Lazycam, all the info in there just like I saved it, but when I try and post it to Mach3, it says "File could not be opened.

It appears the LCam is saved and I can post to Mach3 at that time, however, if I close that file and reopen at in a later session, it opens, but if I try to Post code to Mach3, I get a Lazycam popup window that says "File could not be opened", am really confused. I've been fighting this for a week now, anytime I need to use a previously generated LCam file that I have saved, it won't work, I have to start all over with a dxf file

Sure Tetralite,
Another thing I found out, if you get a lot of extra lines in your .dxf file from ACad to LCam, it is the defpoints that don't always show up in the ACad drawing, but as long as you have that layer, they show up as lines in Lazycam. You can't delete that layer in ACad's original file, but you can copy just the layers you want to keep and paste to a new file, then those defpoints won't show up in the new drawing, or in LCam. Not susre why, but that's the way it works.

Hi olf20, yes I get Lcam to save the file, not sure it saves it correctly though, I see the file when I go to explore, however when I do a 'save as" I don't see that file, however it asks if I want to overwrite that file, that's why I'm not sure it's saving it properly. Mach3 will not load it.

Have you tried shutting down your ACad program when opening .dxf files in Lazycam, that works for me with ACad Lite..

I have the same problem and my files are in the right place. Whenever I reload a .lcam file, it will not generate the G code to Mach3, it says "File could not be opened" Very consistant, does it every time. Also I cannot load an Autocad .dxf if the Autocad program is running, have to quit ACad, then Lazycam will load the .dxf and I can set it up and send to Mach3, but if I close it out and reload that .lcam, it won't go to Mach3.
