Export/Import issues

Post by Itsmejoe231 » Mon Jan 03, 2022 7:22 pm

I have done this for years but recently changed to a new laptop and seems all my settings did not transfer.

I can go into CADlite and create the tool paths and then number the cuts in order I want them to cut. Once I have this I export it to DXF (Ployarc). Is this the correct DXF type?

I then go into my cutting program and import it and it converts it to G-Code. All is well except it does not recognize my cut order I specified. It will cut randomly.

I am sure it is something simple I am missing but I have tried everything. Anyone still use this method?

Not familiar with your system but if its not a software configuration issue you could always try exporting as different dxf types and see if one of the other types saves the cut order. Polyarc sounds like an older version of dxf, maybe a newer one will be better.
