  • Hi

    Does anyone know of any free file converters that convert dxf files to ai files so I can import them into Cinema. I dont have access to illustrator anymore. :(

    Thanks

    Can you not just import the dxf file directly into Cinema?

    Cheers, Alan.

    Hi Al

    I've never managed to get anything other than a triangle as a dxf, which would be cool if the dxf wasn't say a floor plan :D

    I can only get it to show as a triangle or nothing at all.

    I thought dxf was a triangulated format.

    I've only used that format a couple of times so I might have a mistook in my ideas. :blink:

    What can you do by taking it through Illustrator?

    I can save from my cad software as an eps and then into illustrator to save back out as v8. As cinema wont directly open eps I was hoping to be able to convert to ai just so I could use my splines from the cad software.

    I dont really want to spend money on illustrator just to save splines :)

    It would be nice if cinema would import eps straight out of the box.

    What size are the CAD files? If they are not in the silly size range you can fire them over and I'll convert them.

    Check PM.

    Cheers, Alan.
