    Bobcad, Alibre and Solid Edge can't open it.

    It's a simple 2 D shape, why not draw it as 2D ?
    Laser cutters only read 2 D files.

    Can't open it here either.

    May be quicker to re-post the original drawing that you did but dimension it up, that way I can re-draw it.

    This is so annoying!
    It just seems stupid that I spent all that time making the part, and then I have to make another drawing only for someone else to make another!

    One last go... I messed around with settings, tried a bunch of different formats... hopefully something works.

    If not I'll knock up the drawing this afternoon.

    I think I have finally got it!

    It occurred to me whilst in the shower (I find the bathroom a great place to solve problems). DXF is a 2d format, yes? For some reason when I import my Maya file into Rhino it gets rotated 90 degrees so that when you look at it from the top all you see is line! So I thought maybe I need to rotate the object so that the drawing can be seen from the top view port, and sure enough I can now see the drawing in eDrawings viewer. So fingers crossed this works.

    u sure thats not to do with your import settings, or the units the prog is set to use?

    John, you are wrong its not 134 inch's long.

    Its 3.4m!

    Leave it with me, I will sort it out.

    How do you plan on keeping this little lot + BOB and PC cool? Looks like you have the same Zapp kit as me and it gets pretty hot I can tell you! I have finally managed to get the three 120mm fans in my case working and although it's a bit noisy, everything stays very cool indeed now.

    Nothing is a sufficiently talented fool!

    I have 2 boxes under my machine and I would prefer to have a setup similar to what you have down.
    I would sure like to see the build log for that PC/controller Lee.
    Any chance of you posting a build log?
    Thanks, Keith
