I opened your dxf file in QCAD and could easily see that parts of your drawing are in the negative Y work space. In QCAD it is very easy to move the whole drawing into positive work space. Corel Draw I don't know how to do that.

See the first attachment. The yellow circle is the 0,0 X,Y location in QCAD, so you can easily see where your drawing objects falls in the work space. Parts of it is too low (in negative Y space).

LibreCad is another free 2D CAD program that can easily move all of the drawing objects into positive work space.

Understand that you cannot effectively or easily laser any parts that are in negative work space.

The second attachment shows BCL reporting that there are over 500 drawing objects. This is really too many to have in one dxf file. Most of your PC memory will be used up by this drawing and BCL will work sluggishly. Since you will need a fair amount of memory to generate and hold all of the g-code as well, this dxf file is a poor one to use with BCL as it is.

The fix is easy however: break your dxf file down into 4 separate parts since you have 4 major parts in this file. You'll like using BCL much better and you'll give it some memory breathing room to generate it's g-code.

Breaking a dxf file down into separate dxf files is very easy to do in QCAD or LibreCad. In Corel Draw, again, I don't know that program, so I can't say how to do that.

Here is your drawing broken down into four separate dxf files. I did this in QCAD. Very easy to do.

You'll find these files are much easier to work with than the one big file.

Since no one has stepped up to offer CD help for you, I think you need to google Corel Draw and see how to do moves. There is a lot of help online for CD as I just did that myself to see.
