I bought this tonight the new one 2017
Anyone give me a run down on proceedure to the fiber from an AI file and why you want to use it I so far feel it was a waste of money unless I am missing a bitmap convertor or a special function it gives you .

Thanks

Export to a DXF file an older version as EZCad does not support the newer releases or for engraving sometimes a BMP file. Yes an older version of CD would have worked just fine. I use X6, once again a Search on here would bring this up.

Export as an ai file, version 8 works fine. Iíve never had a problem with ai files and ezcad.

If you want to work in Corel Draw, and since you have it, you should, the best thing you can do is go do a search on youtube for Doug Green. He has a long list of short (most 1-3 minutes long) videos dealing with Corel Draw and mainly CO2 Epilog lasers. 95% is transferable to Any CO2 laser as most deal with things that we do with images/text that will transfer to the fiber laser also. A few are Epilog specific, but you can tell quick. Go spend a day watching a bunch of them, searching for anything specific you need.

Others out there, but in my opinion, he's the best.

Ditto its got a pretty steep learning curve especially if you have never worked with a graphics program before.
