Importing DXF from Flexipro

Hi Guys, I’m playing with the Carbide Create software prior to buying a Shapeoko, When I try to import a DXF that I created in Flexipro it doesn’t import into Carbide Create. Any suggestions?

Post the file here or send it in to

I get a notice when I try to import the same file that it won’t load because of “polylines” ?

I wasn’t able to open it in Carbide Create either.

Opening it in LibreCAD and exporting as a MakerCAM SVG allowed it to open, but tiny:

Thanks Will, I followed your instructions and was able to open it in Carbide Create and then resize it .
I’ll thinking of buying the standard Shapeoko as I make house plaques mostly.
