You could try this with Corel.

Thanks for all the help guys.  I will have to look into these other programs.
 I have tried increasing the amount of nodes in Corel Draw and I must admit that I am getting good results.

I was aslo able to test "DXF tool" for Corel draw, not to bad at all.  Helped remove extra lines of code and smooth out curves and arcs.
The "DXF tool" worked best on just plain circles.  Used up just a few lines of code, using radious commands.  Nice.

Another quick note for Corel Draw users...

I have been playing with "DFX Tool" for Corel Draw and it is a great program. 
Exporting DXF files using this program has worked very well. Most of the Lazy Cam problems I have been incountering have gone away.
I can produce offsets faster and better, I can actually use the "drill selective circles" feature.
Arcs and circle cutting have greatly improved.

If you are using Corel Draw at the very least, down load their trial program and give it a try.
