I wish to get some laser cutting, but can't find a company that will use the drawings I have, which are in solidworks SLDPRT format. It seems that most cutters use DWG orDXF files. Can mine be converted? Or does anyone know a laser company that accepts Solidworks? Pete
I am guessing if you’re asking you’re not a SW users? You can produce DWG/FX drawings from inside Solidworks, with your model drawing open just go File>new>drawing. If you don’t have the software I am sure someone here can do it for you.
Follow the link to my home page (the little house on the left) then send me the drawings and I will squirt them into a DFX for you.
I don’t use the 2D side of SW much if at all so thought more competent people might offer. Don’t worry I can use it I just choose not too, I just cannot quite cut the umbilical with AutoCAD or now draftsight for 2D.
And this is what it was all about. Panel fresh back from the laser people. Thanks everybody, a real "round the world" effort! ( A US forum, picked up by a Danish designer, converted in UK, for an Aussie train build.) Pete
