    Default Printing

    Is there a way to print a file? Not the g-code, the actual dxf file that has been opened in PartWorks. I know that once the toolpath has been made I can save the 3d image and save as a bmp file, but I really need the acual dxf drawings to be saved!

    You can export the selected vectors directly from Partworks to an eps, dxf or ai file to another program, and then print it; or try the "print screen" feature which will save the whole screen image to the clip board.

    Open Your file in the program of your Joyce, then on your keyboard hit print screen, then open your photo program and then paste, Then crop out what you don't need, then paint

    Thanks guys for the replies. You know, maybe one day I should take a basic computer class. It is amazing to see all the easiest things there are to do on a computer.....one would think I should have learned all this BEFORE buying a ShopBot!
    Thanks again!

    Don't even think that way. That would be like putting the horse before the cart!
