That would probably work, and I used a different process. I used a sign
shop program called Flexi, and I opened up a vector art image in this
program. I then exported the image as a DXF file. I then opened this in
AutoCAD and it opened with no problem. My dilemma comes from the fact that I
want to have a CNC plasma machine burn out this Ford oval on a piece of
plate material. But it keeps coming up with errors when I send it to the
machine. It's like it can't process the ellipses that are the drawing of
the letters and the oval. Any ideas as to what to do?
I tried exploding them, but it keeps telling me that it cannot explode
ellipses. Am I doing something wrong or do I need a newer version of
AutoCAD? I am using 14 right now, but I can get 2000LT or 2002, and maybe
True, you can't explode a "true" ellipse. But if you create your ellipse
with PELLIPSE set to 1, AutoCAD will approximate the ellipse with a closed
polyline, which may be exploded and manipulated in other ways.
