Hi, Art

Some DXF tests with 10-2, BobCad,v18,v21,v22,Rino v2.0, TurboCad v8.1, All are working Much better now.

Hear's a Ellips with no leadin's it misses left half rough cut paths, If you add leads, It loaded and I was able to get a full cut path with allot of opengl overflows along the way.

Have a fiew others with issues, But all-n-all, Wow this is Nice.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Art

This King was about 250 units long and loads fine, When it's scaled to 2.50 units it causes open-gl errors.

Pic & Dxf Att.

Thanks, Chip

Hi Chip & All,
Took your small file as is and had errors in Lazycam.
Then did the following with it in this order:
- open in Autocad 2000i and exploded it into individual components and saved as a dxf v12
- imported into Microstation and now exported it as a 2d file ( was 3d on import)
- brought the 2d dxf into Microstation and rotated it around and was saved as a v11 dxf
- brought the v11 dxf into Autocad, relocated to o,o origin and saved it as v12 dxf
Now let Lazcam import it and no errors while in doing a very fine cut to generate toolpaths.

Quess it's just magic.   ???

RICH

MODIFIED: ADDED THE DXF FILE

Art,
Question for you.
What type of feedback or what would be of most value for you? ie;
Just because the file was manipulated and then worked may be useless for your needs.
Would you want a short description, or , dxf's along the way of the conversion?
Like starting dxf, one converted dxf, then dxf of one that worked.

The candle holder is done.
Here are a few positive comments:
- The line on another line in the profile is ignored as long as it is not connected.
- A line close to the profile is ignored (.002") as long as it is not connected to the profile
- You can't have a line inside the profile ( of course no line can go into the negative )
- Text or a dimension can't be left on the drawing or you'll get no profile on import.
Attached for others to play with.

Hi, Rich

The King dxf I posted is about 2.3/4 inch's tall ( 2.750 Units), If I scale it up to 65 Units it loads fine.

The original King drawing was 250 units more or less, and loaded fine also, Would you post the working dxf you have.

Thanks, Chip

Hi, Rich, Art & All

Looks like the generated Solid object isn't following the DXF's profile properly, Top Pic.

Solid object profile is being used to generate the Rough cut path, Bot. Pic.

Looking Nice Art, Thanks, Chip
