In the process of sending several DWG files to CNC machine shops, we found
that many of the shops did not seem to be able to use their CNC machines
with anything other than IGES. Is there a simple way of converting DWG to
IGES without spending $5K for an AutoCad upgrade to Inventor.

We were really suprized that many of the CNC machine shops appear to be in
the dark ages when it comes to interfacing STL or 3D DXF files.



Are there any machine shops on the list that can interface with an STL file
more directly?
