    Try this one:

    sides2.dxf

    The CAD program I normally use gave a similar error, so I just opened it in the free version of Cambam and exported it as DXF.

    Blimey, it has some whacky Bezier style curves in it with drag points as per Corel Draw, I can understand why you are having problems.

    AutoCAD can read it and edit it, but without proper arcs it can't explode it. Chances of LesserCAD reading it somewhere between Zilch and bugger all.

    Here's a version that should work, I traced over your pic...

    Rob you guessed it. It was created in coreldraw x5 but I assumed that with Corel exporting dxf it would be ok. However I was wrong. So what I done is imported it into autocad and draw over the top to copy it lol and it still didn't work
