CorelDraw DXF export file does not load in Lazycam
« on: January 10, 2007, 12:17:21 PM »
I am new to this forum and trying to get my plasma cutter working. I have CorelDraw 7 and a trial version of CorelDraw X3. When I export to a DXF file, it cannot load in Lazy cam. Here are the two messages I get. I tried a simple script which says "William" and did the file-export on both types of Corel.

One says MachManip with a red circle with a X inside. This file was exported using the new X3 version and when opening it with Notepad, it does not have any like breaks. In Wordpad it looks ok.

The other says MachManip with a yellow triangle with a ! inside - "No entities found in import." This file was created in Coreldraw 7 and it does have line breaks in Notepad but doesn't load in Lazycam.

I must be doing something wrong in CorelDraw. Can anyone help me ?

Did you go to additional options at the bottom of the reply page and add them there?

Here is the CorelDraw file for which I changed the file extension to txt so it would be accepted in the attachment. Rename it to .cdr to open it

Hey Alex,
    I tried it as you posted and got the red x message. I then saved it as an Autocad 2000 dxf and it loaded it with no problems. Can you save it as an older DXF? The older the better.

Alex,
   If you can't save it in an older format, try this one.

thanks, your file worked good. Using the new version, I tried saving as 2000 and it did not work. I opened the dxf file and it does not seem to have end of line carrige controls, all the text is bunched together. I also have CorelDraw 7 and that dxf file does not work either. So, I am stumped.
