No Entities Found
« on: March 08, 2008, 02:35:45 PM »
I'm importing a DXF from TurboCAD that is just a simple ellipse. When I open the file in LazyCAM Pro mill, I get a "No EntitiesFound" error and nothing shows up. I've tried it as a DXF, DWG, JPG and a few others. It shows up in JPG format but the converter wrecks it.
Help!

Swbogart - Is your DXF file still open in TurboCad when you try to import it into LazyCam?  If it is, then that is probably the problem.  Close the TurboCad File (not necessary to close TurboCad, just the file in question.)  If the file is not open then???

Good luck

Nope. TurboCAD and Mach3/LazyCAM are on different computers.

swbogart - I downloaded your dxf - Could not get it to load in LazyCam but was able to open it in AutoCad and then re-saved it as a new DXF file.  The new file opened in LazyCam without a problem.

See if you can download and open the file attached.  If you can, it would sound like the problem might be the format in which you are saving your file.

Hi, Swbogart

Same as Bob, Could not get it to load in LazyCam but was able to open it in BobCad and then re-saved it as a new DXF file.  The new file opened in LazyCam

without a problem.

What Cad are you using ?

Thanks, Chip

I'm using TurboCAD Pro 12.0. I've imported several other drawings from it with no trouble until today.
Thanks,
Scot

There's something wacky with my LazyCAM. I can load Chip's DXF but it comes in as a 32-sided polygon, not a smooth ellipse.

I get the same no entities found error as before when I load Bob's DXF.

Since they both work in you'ns software maybe I need to wipe and reload mine.

Thanks Chip!

I used your new one and cut my pieces out. I still need to find out what's up with my TurboCAD export files though. Maybe I should try another CAD.
