Is there a way to import multiple dad’s into estlcam to be cut as one? For example, if I have a dxf of a tree and one of a bear, can I import both or must I use a separate program to join them and save as a single did before I do so? Also, let’s say I want to cut that out now. Is there a good program to edit dxf files? Something where I can add font, or add an outline to cut out a pattern at a specific place?May 5, 2017 at 5:42 am #32919

libreCAD is a good choice, IMO. OnShape can do it to, but you have to Wade through a bunch of 3d features to find what you want. You can basically import dxf files into a sketch, then edit it, and then export the sketch as a dxf.
The only problem I’ve had with libreCAD is the “components” don’t work right in EstlCAM, but you can select everything and explode the components right before saving. I usually have a different file with the exploded components.May 5, 2017 at 12:32 pm #32950
I’d also like to hear if there is a way to insert multiple DXF files into one screen on Estlcam for toolpath setup. (I tried inserting as suggested but can only get one file in at a time)May 5, 2017 at 12:51 pm #32953
