Re: template to dxf ?

Thanks Neville and Dennis:
good information.
I ended up making a a grid on the template, then measuring points every 1/2 inch to assign a X Y value on a spread sheet.
An associate will create an auto cad drawing file from the points.
I have not seen the resault yet, fingers crossed.

Re: closed contour ?

thanks Kerry and Josh
the frustrating part is not knowing what is wrong. The same file I posted I tried to extend/ trim all the lines and arcs before and after I posted. it worked for Kerry but still would not work for me.
Who ever said ignorance is bliss was ignorant. :lol:

Re: which software

thanks for input.
its not so much the money as the time.
I would rather take the time to learn one soft ware package that will meet all my needs rather then learn one that will fall short.

Re: closed contour ?

thanks Kerry: I have trim/esxtended every line/arc too many times to count. I have trimed/extend using one entity and two entity. I have tried to off set the lines 1/4 inch and trim/extend, I have tried to move the whole pattern 1/4", I have tried to redraw, always the same error message. "...

Re: corner cabinet mitered backs

Cutting a 45 angle in a nest I found this discussion last night, and it answers allot of my questions. But I wonder about the DXF file you are creating, and nesting. Do you create a different file for each size you will be cutting, then check off the backs which need mitering in the e cab file? To c...
