Re: Fastest way to create DXF of sheetmetal for lasercutter?

I do it the way you say. I dont use the right click/save as method as I usually have more than 1 part so its easier to make a 1:1 drawing of all my parts and then save as dxf for nesting in acad.

Right click on the file and select "send to compressed zip folder" and then try to attach that. I think you can only attach 1 file at a time unless the files are included in a single zip file. An the file has a max size limit of 2MB

I think it's a max size of 1.5MB, not 2MB

Hi,
Our developer has began to investigate about this issue.
Moreover, can you change your flange's bend transition to avoid this issue?
the step is as below:
1.open your part file
2. edit the flange feature one by one
3. change the bend transition in the bend page to be "Intersection"

>here it is

This doesn't address your immediate problem - but I thought you might be interested in how I might model your part - it looked to me like you are doing too much work. (see attached)

hi,
jacky, the solution you gave about the transition did not work out.

I saw that you guys remodeled the file. Could you please give me and idea so far of what has come up with you ?

Does it seem like a cam mistake, or is it something software related? If the first, could you please point out what is being done specifically, and if the latter when would there be an update release?

btw, thanks a lot, I am pretty much impressed by the support.
