Your table uses TURBO CAD files, so what I would try is a FREE trial of TURBO CAD. You can use it to convert your DXF files to TCT and cut them. You can get TURBO CAD for as little as $99 that does 3D if you need 3D, or get just a 2D program for even less right from the TURBO CAD site. If you look around you can find it for even less.

OR just try this one

Hope this helps you.

I use TurboCad deluxe 20 I have found the deluxe works better then the Designers version for plasma work. IMHO :lol:
Here is deluxe 21 for $50. on amazon

Great! I don't use TURBO CAD but just wanted to steer him in that direction, glad someone that uses it chipped in. Like I told him, if you look around it can be found for a lower price after he uses the FREE trial to see how he likes it. :D :D
