    I have a friend with a cnc router. He wants me to cut some vinyl to place on the raised areas of a design. I'm having trouble converting his dxf file to a cutable file. Is there a prefered way to export or save so I can cut it in flexisign. Comes in looking ok but is just all broken lines/points if that makes any sense.

    Thanks,

    John

    Make sure the each of the vectored elements has color fill. Import the file into Flexi. Delete the outline. Apply a new outline while in Flexi, then eliminate the color fill.

    I used to have major troubles with .dwg and .dxf files in SignLab until I tried this trick.

    Works awesome.
