I am looking for a solution to a DXF file modification requirement. I am going to try to explain the need as generically as possible and still give enough detail for a reply.
We have five parts that we have saved as DXF files for use in CNC programming. We want to be able to customize each part by only changing the values in the DXF file that need to be changed without having to go through SolidWorks to change the file. For example a 'D' shaped part where the only thing changing each time is the width and radius of the 'D'. I have tried creating two different DXF files of the same part by changing the dimensions between each file and comparing the results to see what changed. The hope is to be able to use output from our SAP system to drive the changes in the DXF file. Unfortunately this task is a little more than I have the time or patience to solve. I have created macros to simplify my job of creating the necessary DXF file each time but the goal is to be able to generate the DXF without my intervention.
I hope I have described this clearly enough. I would appreciate any suggestions or recommendations. My employer is willing to pay for a custom solution if this is the right approach. Please email me at email@example.com for more information or questions.
