Help converting DXF to STL

Postby Nick Sollecito » Thu, Jan 06 2011, 11:18AM

Hi
Could someone help with converting a DXF to STL?
I downloaded Accutran and loaded in the following 3d dxf file for a viking refrigerator but when it loads in Accutran it only shows the nameplate. When I look at the file with a solidworks dxf viewer it shows all of the views for the refrigerator. Not sure if it's something I'm not doing right or if the file is bad. I download it from Viking's Site.
Thanks!
Nick

Hi George,
Thank you for doing the conversion. Much appreciated. I would really like to know how you were able to find the parts of the file to convert. When I opened the file in Accutran I could only see the Viking nameplate.
Thanks
Nick

Hi Nick
Here is how it opens up in just 2 of my Cad programs
1-TurboCAD Professional
2-Punch! ViaCAD
I would say you need to change something in your Accutran then it will open ok

I'll play around with it. I just downloaded Accutran and I am not familiar with it.
On the files that you sent me...
I unzipped the files and put all the stl files in the Appliance/Refrigerator folder. I also put the jpg in the same folder. I cannot see the wine refrigerator in the refrigerator list. Am I doing this correctly?
Thanks!
Nick
