    I tried exporting a simple test pattern to Tukatech, both in AAMA and ASTM DXF, but both of the files,

    1) kept translating HUGE duplicates of the pattern block. (I could just delete them, but I have no idea why it keeps doing it)
    2) seam allowance never showed up. Switching the stitch line and cut line or not, the result was the same.

    I think the problem of 1) is that a .rul isn't being created along with the .dxf export. No idea why the seam allowance isn't appearing though.

    I have a pattern that needs to be exported to a graders, I think they are using Gerber. They say whenever I send the file it is corrupt, the notches do not show up/ the pattern information and there seems to be lots of duplicate lines all over the pattern. I cannot see any of these lines on my CLO file. I am wondering if anyone can help me, perhaps I have done something wrong?
