Hey there folks,
So I created a part that I want produced by a cnc mill and long story short, that every mill I send the file to they cannot open it.
I tried sending them the 2013 .dwg and that didnt work so I sent the 2010 .dwg filetype and that is not working too. I attached the .dwg so you can see if I made some sort of mistake.
Please help! =D
I don't know if this has a bearing on the problem - but if I open in AutoCAD and run the List command it reports the geometry as Block Reference.
If I explode once then it lists 3D Solids which is what I suspect those programs are expecting.
Can you save in another format like STEP or IGES?
Do you have access to AutoCAD to explode the Block Reference?
Try sending them STEP files. Other DWG translators might not be up to date or have ropblems reading 3D data in the DWG.
