Dashed Construction Lines in LaserCAD.

Postby thejuggernaut » Wed Jan 03, 2018 8:20 pm

I have used construction lines in Solidworks to create perforated lines in acrylic that I can snap along. It worked great, but now any time I import a DXF with the dashed lines, it shows up as a solid line. I don't know what I changed, or if it was an update to LaserCAD. Also, any of my older pwj5 files still show the dashed lines. But, if I import the exact same DXF files I used to create those files, the lines are solid. I am running lasercad 7.92.12. Any settings suggestions?!

Regards,

taylor

Open your dxf in Corel draw and open LaserCad from there.

If it still doesn’t work save the file in Corel draw as a CD-R or dxf file then open LaserCad from Corel draw again.

I don't use corel draw. I draw and export directly from Solidworks 2017.
