Carbide create will not open a downloaded .dxf file

I have tried opening quite a few .dxf files in Carbide Create and have had no success with any. I was wanting to try out a few simple designs on my new Shapeoko 3 to get some experience. When I try to open the file nothing happens at all. Any suggestions on this one? Also I just DL’d the update to Cabide Create but that didn’t help either.

Thanks in advance!

It looks like in the current build I am getting a Lua Error: [string “dxfreader.lua”]:641:bad arguement #1 to ‘pairs’(table expected, got string)

It appears that importing .SVGs now work though. You may want to try converting your dxfs to svgs until they fix the code.

Thank you Seth I’ll try that.

I`m new to CNC and trying to use carbide create to generate g code, but had no successful importing dxf and svg files.

When I open one dxf the grid goes away and i can see only the red dot. And when I open the same file in svg only some path appear.

Anyone found a solution for importing dxf on carbide create?
