CopyMachineCloseDXF

From Shopbot Wiki

The problem is that that dxf files need closing information at the end and when the probing is interupted that information isn't written. It's pretty simple to add it manually if you need to. Just open the file in your favorite text editor...the built-in ShopBot editor works great...and then scroll down to the end of the file. You're going to type in some information at the end of the file...CAD programs are pretty fussy so make sure that you type it correctly and leave the right number of spaces.

If you've used the dxf points option in either the 2d or 3d , add the following three lines after the last lines of the file. ***The 0 all by itself in all the following lines is the number zero, NOT the letter "O"***

If you've used the dxf polyline option with a 3d probe then add the following nine lines to the end of your file...
