I don't know if this is your problem or not, just starting to play with Lazycam a little. Is Lcam installed on your C drive? If not, move it to C and see if that helps. Let us know.

Some DXF's  will not open in Lcam... and I wish I could tell you why :( We have an OCX that we use to get the DXF and we can't edit the code.. We are looking for a new one but it is a BIG job to change it


Thanks

Just got back to Mach2/3 after three years and tried LazyCam. Having EXACTLY the same problem, and getting the same message however simple a DXF is imported. Something is fundamentally wrong here.  If it will help, I have full DevcStudio installed for any debugging I can help with, and would REALLY like to het this working for a simple 2D milling job

Is there a test .dxf that can be downloaded to eliminate that issue?

We have the NEW code to open DXF's in Lcam now  :o

There is a small error with Arcs that we are working on... we have tested it and we can now open every dxf that would could not open in the past !!!!!!!!!!!!!

So it is looking better!

Thanks

Brian,

Done some more investigation: I was strying the free-standing download of Lazycam as I didn't want Mach3 installed on this particular machine.  Downloaded and installed a full Mach3 build (with Lazycam) and lasycam now loads sample files.  This needs to be flagged to new users!!!

Is the new version available for beta testing?

Thx

Colin

Hi Brian,, dxf  files will not open in LCam 2.02 when saved using bobcad V2007 as dxf,, re save dxf with bobcad ver.20 or 21 then it loads into Lcam.???
We have the NEW code to open DXF's in Lcam now :o

There is a small error with Arcs that we are working on... we have tested it and we can now open every dxf that would could not open in the past !!!!!!!!!!!!!

So it is looking better!

This may not be any help in this case, but for me, all my problems loading dxf files in LCAM went away when I made sure the same file wasn't open in my CAD program. Just thought I'd mention that because it is one thing that can stop a file from loading.
