    V25 DXF export has segmented non-linear edges

    So just to make sure, I imported the DXF and changed the curve smoothness settings from Coarse to Fine but it didn't change the way the circles were displayed. I thought this issue had been addressed quite some time ago, or? The software still does treat each displayed object as an element...

    V25 DXF export has segmented non-linear edges

    I think the actual DXF file may be fine and the segmentation results from the way Alibre does the DXF import. If I import it into the PCB design software I use, it is fine as it treats circles as circles. This is zoomed into the inside circular edge along with a hole: The PCB design software...

    V25 DXF export has segmented non-linear edges

    Stefan: Thanks for that. I'm starting to suspect that the segmentation is software/system related; I'm running Win 7 on a Lenovo W520, BTW. Problem now is, does Alibre show the actual DXF data, and/or does other software smooth the circular features when the DXF is imported? I suppose I could...

    V25 DXF export has segmented non-linear edges

    Harold: I've got it set that way for 2D drawings as well as the 3D model that the 2D drawings are generated from.

    V25 DXF export has segmented non-linear edges

    Not sure if I'm overlooking some settings somewhere, but when exporting a DXF for having some parts laser cut, the circular edges are segmented more than I would like them to be. Does anyone know if there is a way to reduce this? I've made sure that the display settings under File Properties...

    Showing weld seams on folded sheet metal parts

    Thanks for that; good explanation. That would also work. Linear Pattern could be used to fill in the other corners.

    Showing weld seams on folded sheet metal parts

    OK, thanks for for the feedback. It's kind of what I expected; I just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking any features. I think a script would be extremely helpful and would be a good solution but I'd have to get into things much deeper and don't have the time for that right now. I don't...

    Showing weld seams on folded sheet metal parts

    Just wondering if anyone knows of a better way to show weld seams on folded aluminum parts that have been modeled as a sheet metal part. The material thickness I'm using at the moment is 4.7 mm. I realize there are annotations available but they don't show the physical seam. The voids where...
