Techsoft 2D to Laser Cutter 5.3 issues

Post by DTTechnician » Mon Jan 27, 2020 9:30 am

Hi there I am relatively new to using 2D Design and Laser Cutter 5.3 and learning as I go.
I have been sent a file created in 2D Design. Exported as a dxf file and then imported into Laser Cutter 5.3.
The design is of two packaging designs laid out side by side.
On opening the file in Laser Cutter 5.3 the right hand package design is missing and lines on the left hand missing from the original design.
Can anyone advice me please.
Many Thanks

Hi Julie,
I don't have 2D design now and can't remember it well - check all the objects are on correct layers and are polylines, not hatched (although you would get a message about hatches).

Using two LS3060's and an ex 3020 user
Please note I am not employed by HPC, any advice or recomendations I give are based on my own experience and are not necessarily the same as HPC's. First point of contact on any hardware issues should be with HPC

Hi Julie
We used 2D Design at the school I taught in, but we found exporting for engraving to be unreliable.
We found Corel Draw a much better option, importing DXF files into it if needed - when original work done in Techsofts 2D Design Software.
