Hi John
I dont have any experance with turbocad but I have 1 guestion that is are you wanting to import a dxf file from turbocad into ecab? If so you should be able do do this in shape maninager and or part editor depinding on what you are wanting to creat( a tool or a part). If you are wanting to send a dxf file directly to controle nesting then the dxf layers in the dxf files need to be named correctly. as per thermwoods manule example : outline z0p75 for a outline cut. in .75 material
Yes! Oh Yes! I Think We Are Going to make It!
