ShopBot PartWizard will import a version 12 or 14 DXF. The control software (runs the tool) will convert a DXF to SBP code using the FC command...but getting the part into PartWizard and creating your toolpaths that way is the preferred method.

I think that Trevor is asking if Coreldraw Essentials 2 is suitable for shopbotting because it (this version of Coreldraw) doesn't appear to have a dxf export?

Trevor, are you saying that CorelDraw Essentials 2 cannot "Export" as a .dxf, or save? Check the file types in the export dialog. Sometimes there are more options for exporting than saving. Also, Parts Wizard will "Import Vectors" of these file types, .eps,.dxf,.dwg,.ai,.wmf,.pic.
