    BobCad V29 Arcs sectioned

    Hi, im programming with the BobCad V29 my laser machine, i use dxf file but when i have an arcs on my
    drawing the cutting was in section and not make the radius.
    I made my files in solidworks but when i open the dxf on Bobcad the arcs appear in sections.

    Hi Daniel, try running the function "Reorganize" on your geometry after opening/merging in the dxf. It's also possible when exporting from Solidworks it is converting your arcs into segments. Check those settings as well. I'm not quite clear on the nature of your problem from the description you gave. Got a file sample you can upload?

    In solidworks, when you choose to export and select dxf, choose "options". In the dialogue, select dwg/dxf and then in the dropdown, try R14 as the version.

    The file would help.
