Pulling in DXF File

Postby Randy L Pierce » Thu, Jan 17 2008, 10:26AM

:?: This is my first post. Hope it is in the right area.
I would like to know how to bring a DXF File into the Part Editor.
We do quite alot of radius and spline construction, and use AutoCad for our shop drwaings. I can take our DWG files & convert them into DXF Files to import into the controller, but would like to be able to put them into the part editor so I can design the casework.
Thanks for the help

Hi Randy and welcome to the family!

Actually, questions about eCabinets should go in the eCabinet Systems Software Forum but it isn't real clear about that.

To load a DXF into the Part Editor, you have to be in Contour Mode (see 1st image below). There you just click the Load Item icon (2nd image) and browse to your DXF.

Be aware that eCabinets does not support splines and that they will need to be converted to polylines before importing the DXF.
