FabriCAM Software About Dxf and Dwg for Import (Part 1) Step by Step Video Tutorial

fabricam dxf dwg import

When it comes to different CAD files available for importing we have two main one that we will be looking at.

The purpose of these file formats makes it possible to translate mathematical calculation to a two and three dimensional space.

This video is part of a Mini-Series.
Next video covers Config Import Art Parts.

Alright, guys, In today's video, we're gonna be looking at the difference between D x f and D W G files for our, um, import configuration tab. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. We make short and easy to watch problem solving videos and we also have daily updates. Otherwise we're into the programme here. So now just so you guys know this is gonna be a mini series on the actual import tab for the configuration. So there's quite a few things we have to cover. But first of all, I would say Let's first go through what d x f and D w G kind of stands for or what they are used for. And, um, in when it comes to cad programmes, this is normally the native format you'll be using. So, uh, yeah, what it comes down to is, um AD x f file. In short, it's, uh it stands for drawing enhanced, uh, sorry exchanged format or drawing interchange format. So that is pretty much what the the D X F stands for. And, um, it's a type vector file, you can say so. It works with Mahe mathematical equations the way it stores it. And also many engineers, designers, architects, um, use the D X F file format for two D and three D drawings steering production, so that makes it very handy. So you can kind of use it as a form of a two D layout for product designs. I mean, obviously it doesn't have to be just product designs, but then you can also do it for three dimensional products, so you can do all the way from the layout for when you want to cut it. And you can have, like, a preview of what the final thing will look like with all those pieces Very handy. I mean, the formats or both these formats have been around about 40 41 years. So it is quite an old, um, format. I think it was introduced around 1981 82 around there. And, uh, yeah, and the main difference between the D x f and D w g. At least what I could find from it was that, uh, the D w um, AD X f was kind of became the standard for the AutoCAD programme, where the d w g again is like the native you can say for, um, stuff like draught side Also AutoCAD bricks. Um uh, what was the other one Inter caddy and open design alliance. So the D W G is a bit of a wider range format, So more programmes kind of, um use that where? I'm sure most of them also can use the AutoCAD from adobe. I mean, the d x f um, but that is kind of very refined, I think version to work better with their programme, But yeah, otherwise that is it on the actual um So if we go to configuration on the import, we can see we have the option here. Let's spell zoom quick. Um import dx f forward slash d w g. So this next section is going to be all about those type of files. And that's why I figured it's a good idea to understand what they are. So when we're working with them, you understand that, um, this is the way it calculates it. And it's very important to remember that this is a mathematical type file format which, um, is great for many reasons where you can scale it up to whatever size and you can work with, uh, tolerance, which you can see a lot of here, but yeah, otherwise, that is it on the actual, um uh, file formats. If we head gear to softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover. And you can also isolate your search on the top or right. If you do not. However, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go. Yeah, request the training video, fill in the mini form, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
