Dealing with a 2d image stored in a DXG file


I offered to cut out a new plexiglass visor for a friend and he sent me a dxg file, with a 2d shape.

what’s the most expedient method / tool for getting this into a cut-able pattern?


Are you sure it was DXG and not DXF?

If DXF, my workflow is to import it into Inkscape and save as SVG.


Or maybe it’s a DWG?


There are free converters out there to turn dwg to dxf though they might not keep up to the latest Autocad release
