Dxf import problem

can anyone give this a try and see if it works for them? dxf look ok in all the viewers I’ve tried (rectangle with arc corners), but on import the arcs are displaced.

I’m running 6.0.0-rc1

What is it, and what would you want anyone do with it?
View it in a CAD program?
Import in Pcbnew?

Pcbnew / File / Import / Import Graphics / (browse) / OK
Looks like a roughly 64mm long board layout:

So you say arcs…
Ah, yes, when I zoom in I see the left corners are slightly curved.

The small corners are apparently also arc’s, but the radius is too big to show:

Thanks. I was able to manually edit my broken import, but it looks like I just need a newer (older? 6.0.0 vs 5.1.0 confuses me)

The newest official version of KiCaD is V5.1.2

All V6 versions are “nightly builds”.
These “Nigtly builds” are for people who like to exeriment with the latest added features, and for people who want to give feedback on what te developers are doing.
These Nigtly builds may have new and changing bugs every day or week.

In your first post you say u use version 6.0.0-rc1, which surprises me.
“rc” is usually used as abbreviation of “Release Candidate” and only released shortly (Several weeks or months) before a final version is released, to give people who want to help with development an opportunity to do final stability tests.

A stable V6.0.0 of KiCad is not expected for about 1 or 2 years.

Nightlies include the tag of the next “milestone” which is why this is here. (I think this might differ depending on platform as i have also seen current nighlties with 5.0.0-something syntax over on the bugtracker)
