I have a vendor that wants to use my solid model files that I created in Creo 2.0 for CNC programming. They are requesting the files to be in DXF format. This is the format there software allows them to use. When I convert my 3d Models in PRT format to DXF format, errors occur. I understand I am going from 3d to 2d. Is there a way for me to convert these files to make them work correctly? When I open the DXF files, it looks like the information isnt there. When I convert a basic plate to a DXF file with basic 2d features, it converts fine.
Any help would be great.
Solved! Go to Solution.
if you open your DXF file in Notepad, you will find strapbill_img_1.png text string inside it. This is an evidence, that you created a drawing containing Shaded view.
If you want to produce correct DXF file, you have to set all drawing views as Hidden, No Hidden or Wireframe.
please create test part (simple brick), its drawing and DXF generated from the drawing. Zip these files and upload zip file. Click Use advanced editor link in the upper right corner to get access to Browse button.
Weird. The DXF files definitely do not contain the model.
Attached is a drawing I made and exported using your part.
I'm wondering if there is some config.pro setting that is causing the issue. Can you start Creo without any config.pro (or config.sup) files in the loadpoint, your startup directory, and your home directory and then test again?
