hi ray, I have autocad, fusion360, slicer for f360, and rhino 5 which I find really easy to use. I was trying to save the file while in slicer f360, last night i opened the file in f360 but i can't access slicer while in f360.

probably something I should be able to do but it's all new to me. I couldn't create the egg crate buck in f360 without slicer, but I did manage to save the file as an stl and when I checked in the folder I had 22 pieces listed as saved. so I'm guessing something must have worked lol. if it's possible to print stl files on paper I should be good

I shall call the printing guys today and see

thanks

Open the dxf in Autocad. You will need a version of Autocad as new as the Autodesk program you exported it from unless you were able to save as an earlier version in that program. Once open go to the top left drop down (Red A in a Square) and select export and then PDF. If that doesn't work get Draftsight as it's free, you will have a current release and it will likely open any DXF version you can throw at it. Same process. Go to the green DS sqare drop down in the top left corner and select export and PDF.

I have Rhino 6 and it converts and prints PDF easily, I would have thought 5 would too,
there is a 90 day trial of Rhino 6 available maybe you could try it.

cheers philc
