Problem with Ellipse saving in DXF
Read 2510 times

I am trying to save a CAD drawing as a DXF file. The DXF file isn't generating any of the elliptical curves. Any help would be appreciated.

Do the curves show if you 'Save as' a .tcw file.

What release are you using?  I had the same problem a while back (I think it was when V14 or V15 first came out) but I complained about it and IMSI eventually issued a patch.  If you think it will be helpful I'll try to look up my correspondence with IMSI on this issue.

I guess I didn't give enough information. When I import my DXF file to editor for Genesis Evolution(CnC Program editor) the elliptical code is not there. Any other type of arc imports just fine.

If you Explode the ellipse one time it will become a polyline. Would that make a difference?
