Can CNC machinists use DXF files for non-sheet metal parts?

Hello all,


I am curious about DXF files for cnc machining. I typically see them being used for only flat parts (sheet metal) but I have not seen them being used for non-flat parts (for example, a pipe). Are there times when machinists can use DXF files for non sheet metals and why would they need to do that?
