help with some files

Postby Marcel Thibodeau » Fri, Jan 22 2016, 2:09PM

I got an email today regarding making some custom parts on my CS43,
It was pretty vague but I think they want them cut from 3/4 plywood. They were kind enough to send me a dwg and dxf but of course they didn't work because there was no thickness.
Can some one take a look at these and help me out. I don't have to software to fix these. I get a few things like this a year come across my desk, usually letter work. I'd appreciate some guidance on some entry level software that can process these files with out too much of a learning curve.

Thanks guys

You can purchase V Carve Pro from vectric some time later you can up grade to Aspire. I use it for everything.
