    Hi,

    I was hoping to update the cam software for my Sei 810 personnel router but I don't seem to be able to find a post processor for it, which seems to rule out cut2d bobcam ect.
    Fortunately I do seem to have made some progress with Sei's cam program although it does run in dos which isn't ideal. What I could do with is a very easy program for generating simple 2d dxf files which will enable me to have a play with the machine and deciede whether to put up with the ancient cam program or update the electronics on the machine.

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Paul,

    First off the good news, you don't have to buy a program to do what you want.
    there are loads of free ones out there that will do all you need.

    One good free program is Draftsight, do a Google, downside is it takes a bit of learing but there are loads of video's on Youtube.

    Possible the easiest is one called Deltacad, http://www.deltacad.com
    $40 to buy but you get 30 days free and if you reinstall it you get another 30 days.

    Give this one a try first, it is easy to use.
