    Import cutter profile as dxf

    So I'm needing to import several cutter profiles as dxf files from NX. I have the cutter model, but don't know what I need to export/how to properly export from NX to make it able to be imported in WorkNC as a cutter profile to generate a tool. Help is appreciated!

    Re: Import cutter profile as dxf

    If you want to use custom cutter profiles in WorkNC for anything other than 3-axis you will need to purchase the ATF module, or upgrade to WorkNC 2022. The ATF module allows for custom cutter profiles in any axis, which makes using circle segment cutters possible.

    At least that's how I understand it.
