Hi

I'm trying to export DXFs but when I open them up in Inkscape there is nothing there.
I open them up in notepad++ and something is has been writtten but I've no idea what it means.

(I have tried opneing them in Inventor but the DXF functions in Inventor are terribly broken!)

Inkscape's dxf handling can be a bit funny; you might want to spend some time with your favorite search engine.

One suggestio n I found was to open (rather than import) the dxf file.  I was going to try it, but I'm putting this desktop back together after a hard drive crash and Inkscape seems to have been a casualty.

Yeah Inkscape is a bit flakey when it comes to DXF import.

Circular gear export fine now, its the log gears that dont have any teeth.
