Hi,
I have been working on vectorizing some raster black and white images to vectors using illustrator cc 2020, and although the document info option tells me that there is no open paths; after saving as dxf file and delivering it to the cnc operator it tells me that it does have some open paths; how is that possible, and how can I fix it plz?

Well, apparently AI's check is based on its native data, not the exported version. You need to download an actual CAD program like Darftsight that will run as an unlimited DWG/ DXF viewer to verify the output and check for errors.

Thanks Mylenium, but I googled draftsight and it's kind of hard to find/download; is there another software that could do the same thing?
