Mach3 manual says there is a DXF import feature but?????
« on: March 10, 2011, 09:07:58 AM »
Hello guys,

I have the lockdown version of Mach3 and I don't see anywhere where you can import DXF files like the manual describes. Was this feature removed? if so, why?

Obviously the manual is not up to date with the latest version of Mach.
The direct .dfx import was removed from the menu long ago in favour of LazyCam which does the same job only better and with more options. I think that it was then envisaged that LazyCam would continue to be developed though.

From a quick search "DXF Import"

MUCH more there if you are interested.

Thanks, perhaps a quick search would have been the thing to do first.
