    I'm having problems when I load a dxf file in OpenBuilds CAM such that all my circles in my drawing are moved to the origin. My polylines are fine, but I end up having to redraw all my circles in CAM, and making adjustments is impossible since they are no longer the same object. Is there a reason why this happens?

    It can get a little picky as DXFs can have versioning differences (R12 vs R14 vs R2000 etc each version of Autocad changed the DXF spec just a little) so sometimes hard to solve

    1. Make sure is DXF R12 Polyline format when you export
    2. Make sure your circles are of type CIRCLE or ARCS. Some CAD software exports Circles as SPLINES which doesnt play too nice. Or explode Circles into Polylines too
