    Thanks for the offer, but I've reverted to my librecad, which is fully functional and does file conversion as well as export and import dxf files.
    It just not as easy to use without a graphics pad. Plus my old lenovo laptop isn't the quickest any more, originally on XP PRO, I upgraded the memory and the software to Windows 10.
    I've got a 64bit compaq laptop on Windows 10 Pro but it has a power fault, which I can't trace.
    Must try to find a laptop engineer who doesn't charge the earth to fix it.
    But I'll manage for now, it keeps me occupied trying different ways of working.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Hi Colin.
    Trial versions often do not allow exports in anything other than their default extension, in the case of DraftSight that is DWG. I have the Professional version which cost ยฃ117. The standard version is around ยฃ79. The free version was withdrawn early in 2019 although my home version did not fail until November `20.
    If you are stuck, just send the DWG to me and I will export in DXF and return to you.
    Peter.
    I cannot promise to finish one project before starting another. I know, I tried.

    Hi Peter, I found it this morning and installed the trial version as there isn't a free version.
    Imported the drawings I wanted to edit and had a go, not bad but harder to get my head round, then I tried to export the modified drawings as dxf but it keeps changing to dwg files. Which when loaded to the Cricut weren't sized correctly, but when sent to printer were ok.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Hi Colin.
    I just had to update my DraftSight at work and there was a 32 bit version for windows available.

    Hi Colin.
    DraftSight is a 2d design package which, in my opinion, is better than Autocad. It used to be free but last year they put an annual charge of ยฃ72. Still less than the ยฃ3,000 or so for Autocad. I have bought it and use it for all of my design work. I have just checked and the current cost is ยฃ79.

    Hi Ian.
    Try Fusion 360. It is free, at the moment.

    Hi Colin
    Been there I used Solid Edge but my new PC with windows 10 won't run it! Can't afford a new CAD package today.
