Here is the file I created using CorelDraw 7. When I try to load this one, I get an error that Lazycam cannot find any entities.

I save these as Autocad DXF 2000. Must be a little different than Corel. Can you save these in another program and try saving them as a DXF?

Try this converterhttp://www.a9tech.com/products/a9converter/
Make the output file DXF
Make the output verson autocad 12
Then drag and drop your CorelDraw File into the converter then hit convert

I tried William in Turbo Cad 6 and saved as a DXF. This did not load in Lazycam either, got msg that no entities found in the file.

I tried the A9 converter however it will not accept as imput a .cdr file which is the natural output for CorelDraw files. Thanks for the suggestion

In CorelDraw export as a DXF.  Autocad 11 format it will work

I exported from CorelDraw as a plt file and it loads directly into Lazycam. I exported a DWG file and used the A9converter to make a DXF file and it worked fine. I wonder what is wrong with LazyCam and my versions of CorelDraw ? I also tried the file export in Turbocad ver 6 and it did not work either as a DXF file. BTW, when exporting, I do not get the option to create version 11 file, only to 13 and up.

Try the DXFTool from CandCNC (http://www.candcnc.com/DXFToolDetails.htm) it works with CorelDraw V12 and X3.

Thank you for the suggestion. I will look into it when I get my hardware working better. My plasma torch is acting weird. At the moment, I am having success with exporting hpgl plt files. They load into LazyCam with no problems.
