DXF Importer is an Add-On Module for Project Designer that adds the capability to import vector art files in the popular DXF format. The importer then has tools to allow scaling, rearranging, flipping, rotating, auto-connecting of lines, splitting (tiling designs), create boards to layout shapes, and then importing those boards into Designer. See tutorial videos,
Yes, there is a demo version built into the Project Designer.
DXF (Drawing eXchange Format) is a vector graphic file format typically used with AutoCAD software. It can, however, be read and exported from most vector drawing programs, such as Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw. DXF files contain only vector line/path information, which enables these drawings to be imported into Project Designer as drawn lines, rather than pattern shapes.
No, these are image file formats. DXF Importer only supports STL file import.
See the tutorials. These provide the best explanation of how to use the software.
There are many online repositories of existing DXF files that can be accessed for free or for pay. To find DXF files, Google “DXF files” or “CNC Projects” and and find many sites offering DXF models.
Yes, there is a DXF file built in as a Sample.
We recommend a screen resolution of at least 1024×768 for the DXF Importer, but any video card that works with the Project Designer software will work. We have not encountered any that do not work.
We recommend at least 2GB of RAM, the more the better. Otherwise, there are no additional requirements beyond those of the Project Designer software.
No, only DXF files are supported. However, every vector drawing program should export to DXF format.
