Never had an issue, can you post the file you are having issues with?

I have not had any issues with anything from here in a dxf format. Post up a couple your having issues with and we can see if they work for us.

sometimes ive had that happen to me but only when the file was too big. Sometimes I think the amount of nodes tends to freeze an make torchmate CAD crash an it automatically shuts down . But its been a while since its happened to me .

This should make your day...

Here at our shop we were having the same issue, after a few run arounds with torchmate, they flat out told us "The Dxf import button/feature in torchmate has been removed." This is apparently due to issues some customers were having. They have no intentions of reinstating the feature and expect you to import your program into torchmate cam, create a gm file, and go from there. Kind of a pain in the ass when all of your parts are one off, and you're trying to meet a quota...

Hope that helps. Call and complain, we have multiple times..
