The question is, will the cnc machine be able to read binary DXFs.
If I had a cnc machine that reads DXF and I can't get the filesize
below a certain limit, I think I would try and load the cnc data
directly, maybe that is more compact. Maybe not. Worth a try I guess.

You can export your dxf as 'ENTITIES ONLY'. There is a check box in
the save as dxf dialog. It lets you select what should go in the dxf.
It makes the file a lot smaller. Make sure you explode and purge any

That;'s a good plan.
I would also suggest to try different DXF version. Also, set all
properties to BYLAYER so you don't store them in each entity (assuming
you have got a lot of entities).
Slash, what version DXF does the cnc machine read? Would you send me a
sample per emaill (get rid of the space in the address), I am more
than happy to play with it for a bit.
uh how must i explane ? mmm, uh its a drawing of a profile (to make doors
i use the picture for the man behind the cam machine, so he knows how to put
the profile on the machine.
i use autocad lt 2002, i dont see in the dxfoutbox any enities.
please dont leave me hanging

ok, do you have a new picture for each new cnc program? or do you have
categories of profiles and and what you need is a picture for each
Say you have 200 cnc programs. How many pictures will you have? Does
the picture show what is going to be cut?
Write in Dutch if it's easier. I'll make some sense out of it.
