Need to export a flat DXF file from Rhino3D? The best way to create a successful design for laser cutting is to use one of SendCutSend’s Recommended Software. Rhino3D is not on our preferred software list because compared to other design tools, Rhino3D tends to produce inconsistent exports.
However we understand it’s not always possible to work with unfamiliar software. If you need to use Rhino3D for your design process, check out Creating a Rhino3D Export to DXF.
Once your file is exported as a two-dimensional DXF file at 1:1 scaling, you should be able to upload it directly to our website for an instant quote. Confirm the overall dimensions and units are correct in the part preview. Use our file setup checklist to ensure your 2D file is cut-ready!
For general preflight, the free, open source program QCAD is great for checking 2D files. We have guidance on reviewing designs in QCAD here: How To Preflight Your Designs Using QCAD
