Frustrating AutoCAD Inventor

Gordo, you helped.

I had to get my head outta 3D space and design in 2D.

Oh sure, I designed the project in 3D (Inventor), but when it comes to cutting out the parts, I took all my DWG’s and did a re-draw in VISIO (my favorite 2D software waaayyyyyy before MS bought it).

And VISIO has “save as DXF” functionality.

I took that file and loaded it into Carbide Create (which was seamless), and created my G Code.

I’m happy with the work flow. Thank you for your help.



Can you add that in the thread I just created?

Thank you
