Having trouble with importing/exporting DXF?
Try EXDXF-Pro!

EXDXF-Pro is a DXF converting plugin for Adobe Illustrator which meets professional needs. Various import/export options allow you to successfully convert any DXF files. 

What is DXF?
DXF(Drawing Exchange Format or Drawing Interchange Format) is a CAD file format in vector originally developed by Autodesk. DXF is used when the data has to be compatible with other programs such as drawing software or cutting system. DWG, a standard format of AutoCAD is similar to DXF but DWG can’t be read in other programs.

Adobe Illustrator itself supports DXF. What’s the reason to use EXDXF-Pro?
Adobe Illustrator can not handle some types of DXF and causes incorrect lines or shapes in the converted file. EXDXF-Pro has unique technology to accurately convert DXF to Adobe Illustrator’s bezier curve.  Also you can control the result with various import/export settings.
