Before sending out for CNC cutting (plate aluminum) I’m looking to do simple re-proportioning and dimensioning of DXF artwork that’s public domain. Most of these types of files at least appear to import OK from their original DXF versions, but apparently the ‘artwork’ is full of holes that make it all but impossible to, say, fill enclosed areas, push/pull, etc. What’s an efficient method of getting to the point of ‘curve continuity’, whether by using extensions or other means?
I should mention I’ve got CleanUp and EdgeTools installed, but unable to get them to completely fix things (quite possible I’m not using them to optimum advantage).
Also should mention that the process of ‘convincing’ SU that a fully-enclosed piece of geometry should be fillable has never stopped dogging me, but at least with this type of artwork, there’s just one (complicated) fillable area that I want to end up with.
I will attach an imported model in hopes someone can steer me through this a bit…but I’ve NO idea where my ‘uploaded’ file is going after I think I’ve gone through the process, so…a little more help appreciated there.
Thanks - Dave
ps I just tried the click-and-drag upload after reading a post wherein someone else was having similar upload problems. If it worked, well, I sure can’t tell; seems to be no indication. Gotta be the goofiest upload-attachment process of any forum I’ve used…just sayin’…
