DXF to SVG converter

Post by jbc28 » Tue May 10, 2016 8:48 pm

I have used a free cloud program available with Google Drive to do some dxf to svg conversions. It is called Cloundconvert. It is accessed from the drop down "open with" button within Drive. It seems to do a good job. I always run into issues with Qcad.

I exported a dxf this morning from Draftsight to an SVG file... Worked fine.

This seems to be separate from the Google drive.

I also tried this and only got the bottom half of my file. The top half was missing in action. I will play with it more when I get the time. Will report my finding later.
