I am newbie in building CNC and I have been researching the file “DIYLILCNC_Plans_v1.0.1.zip”. However, when I open the file “DIYLILCNC_laser_cutter_pattern_v1.0.1_Clean5.dxf” with TurboCad, I measure the dimension of length of “X-Beam Bottom” part, it shows only 24.4228 cm which is ~ 9.61″ while the “X-Rail” is 3′ Length which is 36″. Thus, it is impossible to apply the X-Rail to X-Beam Bottom. It makes no sense.
I do not know if the file is incorrect or the software Turbocad gives me incorrect dimension. Please help.
Hi Leon, the DXF files have no default units (units are decided in the software with which you open the DXF). I’d recommend double-checking that you’re asking your software to interpret the units as inches.
Out of curiosity, is there a reason you’re building version 1.0.1?
