    Exporting to DWG/DXF to simplify laser cutting (LANTEK)

    Roman Lech

      Our laser operator is complaining that the DWG's we are generating creates way too many entities (point-line-point) instead of a smooth arcs.  He is using LANTEK software, but the problem is with the exporting to DWG, which is the file he is importing into LANTEX)


      Within Solidworks, the entities are drawn/imported as splines.  When we save to DWG, it becomes lines and looks horrible when laser cut.

       

      Is there a better way for the designers to export in order to have smooth arcs show on the DWG copies? 

      Are there other settings that I'm unaware of?

       

      I have attached a sample SLDPRT, SLDDRW, and exported DWG's as well as screenshots to better explain my situation

       

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!
