Jedicut and Profili
May 20, 2008 10:20PM
I noticed that when you save an airfoil as a .dxf from Profili
(unregistered) that Jedicut will not be able to import the file. I
was trying to find a program to convert from .dxf to .dat and ran
across an old post on RCGroups about such a program from the writer of
Foamworks/Cadworks. So I downloaded an evaluation copy of Cadworks and opened the
.dxf file that Profili had generated.

Before Cadworks will open the file it pops up a window that says
"Select Codepage" Drawings codepage is undefined, select Codepage from

There is a list beginning with Central Europe (1250). I selected the
Central Europe one and the drawing opened. I was then able to save
the drawing in Cadworks as a .dxf file that Jedicut would import.

Is this a problem with Profili or Cadworks and Jedicut? I can open
the Profili .dxf drawings using eDrawings though.

I found a free program that will convert the dxf files that Profili outputs into a dxf format that Jedicut will read.

Go to:

On the left hand menu at the bottom click on "Free Tools"

Download DevConv.

I converted a dxf file from Profili using DevConv from the link I posted above. However when I import the converted file into Jedicut I get this. Is this going to be a problem when I go to cut? It looks the same when I save the dxf file in Jedicut to a .jdp file and then open that file to do a Wing Cut.

Hi !

There is just one problem : the row throw the profile. I think you should delete one of the last point of your profile and it's right winking smiley
