DXF Parse Image Error with Solidworks

I seem to be having an issue when trying to load up a dxf when it’s exported from solidworks. Using the 2017 version on the 3.5.0 firmware for luban and have tried exporting it from the drawing level, from the part level, just the sketch, and even changing the version of dxf.

I did open the dxf up on other programs and it seems fine from there, but whenever I try on luban it just gives me the error. I did manage to open up a dxf someone else uploaded here in the forums onto luban, so this leads me to believe that it’s something with how solidworks is saving the file. Has anyone else managed to get it to work from solidworks or use a secondary program to export a luban friendly dxf?

You can send me the .dxf file to me.

In addition, Snapmaker Luban supports the files including these entity handlers. We will improve this software continuously with your help.


Hi, I have the same problem with SolidWorks 2020 and Luban 3.5.0 as well as Luban 3.8.0. Is there already a solution?

Hi @sbinnemars,

Sorry for the late reply.

Please try the latest version of Snapmaker Luban V 3.8.0. If the software fails to process the file. Please send me the file and we will fix it.

Because of the DXF and SVG file have complicated formats, and we need help from users to make the software better.

Best regards

I would very much like to send you a file, however I am not able to send a .dxf, and when I zip it I get the message that new users cannot upload files…

Read around the forum a little and you will be granted basic rights. This also includes uploading more than one image. You could also upload your file to a one click hoster and post the link to your file.

I had a similar issue exporting from fusion 360 and when I open the dxf there are several layers and when I delete the empty layer it imports fine.

The suffix should be a lowercase letter.

Best regards
