    Hi - this is my first post. I have been reading posts for awhile and I would like to ask a question. I cannot seem to export a DXF file with the Delftship free version when I select developable plates those icons are not highlighted and won't let me select the one that says "export the visible plates as a DXF file" Am I missing something?

    In freeship the button for that purpose works but I cannot seem to find a downloadable manual for version 2.6, does anybody know where a PDF copy can be found? I look on the Delftship website and did not see one.

    I did notice that you could just export all the stations and surfaces by selecting export under file in Delfship but I am trying to cut these stations out on a CNC router but they only show up as half stations with no "base" to mount on a strongback. I would like them to be cut out of plywood and need a full station and all the stations need a common bottom so the rocker comes out correct whem mounted to a strongback. Thank for any help with this - I am sure there is a way but I would like to stop banging my head on the wall.
