to control CNC - 2D machine for example with mach3

I don’t know anything about CNC machines, but the Mach 3 program imports DXF, JPG and BMP files. You could try Saving your artwork as a PDF and then use an online converter to convert the PDF to DXF:

Karlheinz, I recommend that you have a look at Ribbonsoft’s QCad. It’s an AutoCAD R12 like CAD software. It’s very good and is much better for that kind of precision work than Intaglio is. But having said that, QCad can also export SVG files that Intaglio will read. (I know, because I’ve done this many times).

I hope that helps.

Thank you for your advice.I made a test download of Q CAD.I have a problem at the start. Normaly I choose a paper
format for example DIN A4, at first, before I start with work. I don`t find an option in Programm and in Help
Danke

Hallo Karlheinz.
Ich weiß ja nicht wie man mit BMP oder JPG eine CNC Maschine steuert - wenn aber DXF mehr Erfolg verspricht könntest Du das freie http://www.3ds.com/de/products/draftsight/overview/
mal probieren.

Hallo Tom, thank you for your advice.I bought Qcad,it is really good. I would like to control the CNC milling machine with an mac programm like mach 3 but I dont find anything.So I think I have to buy a computer with Window XP to load DXF drawings to control the cnc machine.
Thank you and greetings from Munich
