    Open in?

    Generic answer:
    The DXF format has various versions and types. For CNC style work, most often, you want to convert all drawings to Polylines and saving as an older version (R14) of the DXF standard is more compatible with most software, so for example for OpenBuilds CAM, we want "DXF R14 Polyline" formatted files

    Refer From CAD to CAM, Cleaning up 2D DWG files for CNC. for some more tips
