Re: Soft pierce peck, delayed off until after first cut.

I am still not too sure what it will do if you define a tool as having the DTHC off . It may not issue ANY S codes. You might try using another method to keep the DTHC off on a cut. Tried the new post, Same tap file same results but didn't turn the tourch on: Just testing will try the simpler metho...

Re: Can you convert a dxf to svg?

Make sure you save them in a older version like R14.
I have been able to open some with solid edge then save as dxf like acourt suggests then they (might) open with inkscape.
