Hi,

It sounds like your lettering has come through broken into FastCAM. There can be a few causes of this, especially when drawing in another program. Thankfully we have a guide on how to fix this for you:

Let me know how you go with the repairs!

Hi,

There was no file attached to that?

Either way though, you still need to repair the drawing. It could be that you need to redraw the part. Make sure you have tried CAD Compress & CAD Clean in particular. As they will compress the lines and identify and double lines.

Feel free to email me as well alex.fagan@fastcam.com.au

But again, if the automated tools do not work, you will need to look at redrawing sections.

Cheers,
