    Introduction

    Hello,

    I'm Rick and I use Rhinogold, a Roland wax mill and Protowizard.

    I've got a question about how to create a path from a curve to prep a wax for carving. What type of file do I need to export to create the cutting path for the Roland machine?

    Cheers,
    Rick

    You need a dxf file.
    if you look in the protowizard help file configuring rhino exports, dxf output
    you should find how to do it.

    Hi Rick, welcome to the forum. You have found a great resource concerning CAD, rapid prototyping and all things jewelry related. Remember, there is no dumb question (well - that is not true... there are lots of dumb questions. You just can't hear us laughing).
