DWG will open in FastCAM but not FastNEST

I have made .DWG files of my cut profiles using Solidworks 2014. These DWG files open fine when using FastCAM but when i try to add the same parts to FastNEST i get an error saying

'filename.DWG file is wrong type' which is strange because they open without issue in FastCAM. The preview in FastNEST also shows the shape. Please see attached images.

Any help would be appreciated.

EDIT: i have also tried different DWG types and DXFs

Hi

Check the file input type set in FastNEST, has it been set to DXF?

From your image the file extension "*" suggest that you might have it in NC currently.

Thanks Jackson! It has been a while since I've used fastNEST so i forgot to check for this option.
