Re: Help with DXF

I started with a .eps file and converted it in BobCad but had troubles. I am having some success with Georges .dxf files taken into PE on a display panel, then creating a .twd file to take to CN. I did cut a good sample with an 1/8" bit into Melamine. Now I get to try it on solid Maple. Baby st...

Re: Help with DXF

That is perfect! Thanks so much George. I was able to cut it in Part Editor so I don't know why it shouldn't cut on the Thermwood. I'll try it in the morning!

Re: Help with DXF

I tried last night to search and find out the font. I got close but not exact. I was going to start over with a small text program that will create G code or a .dxf file. Still searching...

Re: Help with DXF

I was able to cut something. It is a little rough/jagged and I think the size is a little large due to the metric conversion I think. Can you send the fixed .DXF or .esa file and maybe I can tweek it a bit on this end to make it work. Thanks for the time you are putting into this Nick. I'll send pic...

Re: Help with DXF

That would be great Nick. 32" is the only dim. I need to stick to. whatever the height ends up after scaling is fine.

Thanks so much!

Re: Help with DXF

I want to cut out the Letters, leaving the background. I thought that I would need a .dxf to do this in the Part Editor, then take to the router. I did not think to try to convert the file to a .twd. Maybe that would work. I will check with Ryan for a quote but this is just a favor for a friend. Hel...

Re: Help with DXF

Here is the dxf. It was converted from another file type and that may be part of my problem. I do plan to cut out the letters on my Thermwood. Thanks guys.

Re: Help with DXF

The error reads: The contour selected has intersecting edges. Trimming any such edges may resolve this problem!

Help with DXF

I need some help to create a DXF file that I can take into the Part Editor and cut out the letters on this sign. I have been able to convert this to a DXF but I get an error when attempting to select the lines. Any help from someone with another CAD/CAM program would be much appreciated. This also n...

Re: Hinges

Wally,

Here is a Sub-Zero that I did a few years ago with the hinges from iceboxes.com. I think what you see in my pictures cost about $1700. for the hardware. Hope this helps.

Re: Cabinet back full dado with scribe

I think you would have to eliminate the 1/8" inset
