Bencut - tabs and inserts
« on: January 22, 2019, 03:45:00 AM »
Hi all, I'm having a little problem!

I have maea box design to cut with bencut. Bencut tells me it can't do tabs or inserts.
Am I doing something wrong?

TIA

Are you talking about Benbox software or BenCutLaser software?

I'm talking about bencut laser. I'm having serious issues getting the correct dxf format. Why so difficult? I use coral draw, illustrator, inkscape and photoshop. I have used the convert pdf to dxf, with absolutely no luck. I'll be honest, I'm regretting paying for the licence.

The DFX format has had many revisions with little or no concern for standards, documentation, or backwards compatibility. The CAD tools such Corel Draw each adapted one and are not compliant with the current version.
