Hi All,
A few comments after doing some additional tests.
- suggest restarting  your computer post installation of the update

I was getting a lot of openGL errors on "small parts" but as the parts were increased in size the errors went away.
I still can't get the full part to import. Seems like it's clipping it off were a curve meets a line. The points in CAD
are the same to "four places" in the cads tolerence info and the files work in other programs ( will check them out to 6 places and post the enlarged file later ). BTW usiing inches and radius.
 Had to fool with the button tool and cuts, equivilant to what happens in lazycam to get rough cuts , but, will forget about that as i believe this is just about testing for DXG import capability.

Will try to do some more testing in a more disciplined way.

MODIFIED: Added attached DXF file for the three balls. Note that this files is an  Ver 12 dxf and all points connect within 6 decimal places.

Hi, Art

While I've had a few Open-GL errors, L-Turn hasn't crashed and seems Robust.

Hear are 2 Pic's & 2 DXF's that Arc.'s are missed on rough tool path, There for a Axial Compressor Inlet In/Ex-Ducser profile.

Thanks, Chip

Hope you don't mind Chip, but wanted to see if it was my computer or something stupid i was doing.
I shrunk your file down( about four different sizes) and flipped it and could generate any cuts i wanted. Here is just one example.

Hi, RICH

The More the Better, Hears a pic in Mach and Txt post done in BobCad v21 of what should be cutting, It's a inside cut starting at X0 Z0 moving Z- X+ outwards with a pre-drilled center hole in the stock.

So the top pic in my previous post is pretty close except for the arc missing.

Thanks, Chip

Thx guys..

 I have the dxf's. Ill let you know what I find. Ive been using those chess pieces as test object s for the most part. Any failures will help me find if my logic is flawed, or if I need to modify some of the import functions..

Art,
Some more tests relative to Lazyturn not showing complete profile on import.
I am attaching files 1B, 2, 3. I figured it may be a drawing problem but shouldn't be.

A few comments about what is shown in the creen captures from lazyturn:

A drawing was created in Autocad and 1 was rejected because of the dot in the drawing
as shown in DOT IN 2. With the dot removed only got a partial import as shown in 1B.
Modifying the drawing by adding another taper as shown in 2 worked and then removing
removing the taper and going back to a face as in 3 it also worked.

Note that in 1C & 1D i changed the direction of how the line was drawn but still was a no go but did seem to
add to the import.

Hi guys

I had one time a toolpath, now every time when i try to make a toolpath the program shuts down with an errorreport to microsoft(error in TODO)
This error occurs in every dxf i load
I was running Lazyturn on a laptop so maybe that is the problem.
If i give the tool an other shape (triangle) then it works (not yet good but...)
P.S.
If i load the rich Threeballs.dxf from answer 198 i see only 2 balls (it is not complete)

Greetings:
