Converting a 3D DXF to STL

Postby Leo Graywacz » Fri, Oct 28 2016, 3:26PM

I have a Kohler sink that has a 3D DXF file. I was able to load it into AutoCAD and then render it and it is a good representation.

I have tried a few online conversion programs, I get the STL file and load it into Display Part Editor. When I get it in there it is no longer hollow. The bowl is filled.

Anyone have any luck with these types of conversions?

Since I can't upload the DXF because it calls it an invalid file, here is the link to the file.
