Hello from loxahatchee Florida

Post by buggy302 » Sat Nov 16, 2019 4:13 pm

Iv been building stuff for years but just got my first plasma table it is a 5x10 arclight table I look forward to learning this thing inside and out. I'm sure I'll have questions for the experts on this page. Everything iv seen so far is great information.

I'm sure a member will chime in with a fix, cannot think of what is causing it. windows normally does it easy after a folder has be assigned. Maybe you anti-virus is blocking them.

Are you able to download the files at all? Is the « default message » shown when trying to download or when trying to open them?

I think you may need to assign your CAM software as the default application to open the dxf files. If you have never used them before, it wouldn’t be surprising that you get that message.

Goto your download folder and see if the ones you have already downloaded are there and right click « open with » then search for your cam software.

It pops up with the message right away. I'll go into settings and try to change it thanks for the input.

Welcome! Yes, it sounds like your PC is set to OPEN download's rather than just SAVING them and is looking for an application to open them with. What Mako said above will work so open up and have fun!
