I am a quite new to Freecad and I have some trouble with the attached DXF file that I exported from TechDraw.
I sent this file to a subcontractor in order to check if it could be machined on a CNC. They are using Autocad (unknow version).
They told me that the file opens without any error message but seems to be completely empty!
At first, I thought about some kind of zooming factor, but it seems not to be the case...
So here are my two questions:
- Does anybody have already experienced this kind of issue?
- Could it be related to the DXF release? (R12 / R14)?
I wanted to change the version on Freecad 0.18 under Preferences / Mod / Import but I couldn’t find the DxfVersionOut as explained here: https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/TechDraw_SaveDXF
So, I’m a bit confused…
My Import-Export settings for DXF are:
Export Drawings Views as Blocks = true
Project exported objects along current view direction = true
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks
