    If you have any BobCAD version later than V24/V25 then it will open those files for you. You would have to pay BobCAD to get a Licensed version as any Unlicensed version will only export files in the BobCAD .bbcd Demo format so you would not be able to save them out in .DXF format.

    If you would like me to have a go at doing it for you with my V28 BobCAD then I am happy to help.

    Regards
    Rob

    You will need to put the Bobcad file in a Zip file to be able to upload to the Zone.

    Can`t open your file, you must have done it in a later version of BobCAD than my V28, each version of BobCAD will not open the next version files, not good!!

    Can you export the file as a .stp file and Zip it as before ?


    Regards

    OK, never mind, I have managed to get the file into my V28, here is the .dxf file attached, see if it opens OK for you and is a good quality file, often get breaks in .dxf drawings !!

    Re: i need to know how to download BobCad V24 or V25

    This is very strange, when I tried to open your .bbcd file in V28 it threw up the "saved with a newer version" error so the file must have at some time been opened and saved again using a much later version, my V28 would not open the file but my V31 did open it so there is something very "squiffy" going on somehow

    Do you have a Demo version of BobCAD on your computer and if so have you opened that file with it ??

    Regards
    Rob

    You need to have a licensed copy of BobCAD or a licensed copy of another software you can "copy and paste" into.
    That is what I had to do, open in V31, copy to clipboard and then paste into V28 and save out as a .dxf !!

    So if you have any more files don`t open them in the V31, just send as the original V24 then it is easy to just open and save out as a .dxf

    Regards
    Rob

    Re: i need to know how to download BobCad V24 or V25

    Are all your files just 2D line drawings or are there any 3D solid models? If there are any 3D then they can be output as a .stp format for use in a different software!!

    BTW What software are you putting the .dxf files into? Directly into a machine control or something like a Fusion 360 free Hobby licence??

    Regards
