My step-daughter has a thriving jewelry and candle business and is being accepted into local stores, so I got an emergency commission to add to her displays for these stores. This was yesterdays output- oak plywood from Ocooch hardwoods (it has an mdf core and cuts very nicely)- quick, easy and now I am a hero. Gene

I am including the .rld file and a .plt export (delete the .ai on the end... could not attach a .plt) I can generate a .dxf if you need it.

FWIW, as another data point, I was able to open the .rld file on my machine that has RDWorks version .21 but I did not try it on lower versions. Inkscape .91 (?) was not able to open the .ai file.

Here are the files in .dxf (both MM and inches). I saved the .rld file from a RDw .19 and I have noticed issues between different versions. I can open the .ai from RDw in my pro graphics package but a lot of people have problems with it. Gene

Thank for sharing. I'm able to open the dxf files but the scale is lost.
are you using 1/8 wood?

I was using oak plywood (mdf core) from ocooch hardwoods. It is about .24 inches- I looked on Menard's website and it can be ordered and picked up at a local store- $59 as I remember. It is very nice material (Ocooch- have not tried Menard's yet). Basically cabinet making plywood. Gene
