It is official. We now have the ability to take a dxf file, convert it to cam files, put it on a thumb drive, plug it into the prototrak, and run it! AND IT WORKS! WE'VE DONE IT!!!

and by the way, I lied about what we had achieved that is the reason for this thread. we had the ability to use DXF 2 weeks ago. What is recent is the ability to take a 3D Solidworks File, convert it into something readable by the Prototrak SMX software, by means of Visual Mill And VisualCAM. So, Now we can do 3D contouring on a machine that normally shouldn't!! The first test is a Beetle weight-size robot chassis, all made out of one solid chunk of aluminum. I'm going out to Simmons Tomorrow, Saturday, to buy it and then I'll run it. Here's a Picture of the Piece:
