Can anyone out here help me. I need a copy of a Ford oval in either AutoCAD
14 or AutoCAD 2000 format. I'm trying to make skidplate for my truck and
I'm not having much luck so far. Thanks for your help.
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.
