I have another DXF and I'm not sure where the resolution problem is coming from...it could be the monitor, but when I import the file has jagged lines and the arc that is highlighted should be closed by the adjacent curve - it seems to extend beyond so I can not create a pocket.
I have included a picture and the file. I have tries several option during the export - different versions 13 & 14, exporting as curves and splines; no difference in CNC12

Hello. Keith

I am new to the forum, and I have seen the videos of the import of the
dxf files and in my system acorns 12v4.50 I do not see the
DXF key how can I fix this problem.
Regards.

Looks like this is probably some setting in your CAD system on how it does circles.

I opened his DXF file in a text editor, and in Visual CADD. It does contain circles, not polygons.
