DXF exporting problems


(IngieBee) #1

Hello all, I want to export in dxf so that I can convert the model in Accutrans to something else. However, when I take my model and load it into Accutrans, the “parts” are in all different directions. Why is that? I changed their origin points to the center, but it didn’t work, I centered the origin points on each individual object to their center’s and it didn’t work, actually doing this made no difference.

Can anyone please help me figure out how to export these pieces so they stay in the right position?

Thank, Ingie

theeth - Are you automating your responses? I think you mixed up your responses to Bob Dog and Ingie Bee.

This sounds more appropriate here:

"try applying rot/size (Ctrl-A)

Martin"

that’s what happens when you have more than one window open :-?

Wow, that did the trick, funny I built it in place, no rotating or anything. I didn’t know it would do that. But it worked like a charm,t hanks again!

Love Ingie

what was there originaly was a reply intented for the Wings import question, and if you look there, you’ll see that the answer wouldn’t really help Ingie (well… maybe it could have, but still…)

juat have a look at the time stamps:
