DXF Output for 2D
To define, DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) is a CAD data file format enabling data interoperability between AutoCAD and other CAD programs. DXF file format was originally introduced in 1982 as part of AutoCAD and was intended to provide an exact representation of the data inside the native file format. Since then, Auto desk publishes DXF specifications for AutoCAD and does support both ASCII and binary forms of DXF.
Gearotic CAD uses DXF as our graphical imaging interface, which is typically supported by most CAD software available today. We use this DXF file format to export all of our 2D and 3D contours. Users may modify content even farther prior to exporting them to meet their criteria. Our exports are made of ” Line to Line data” and are of the highest resolution possible. However, some CAD programs out there appear to stumble with this high resolution depending on the resolution set in configuration and the actual size of your gear? If problem continues with other CAD software suppliers, remember It is possible to decimate these to a lesser resolution, or perhaps convert into Bezier curves, and try again, but again most CAD programs have no issues.
