About your file
All Frontier Design product fabrication files contain these things; a DXF File, a SVG File and two PDF Files... Simple, right?
A DXF (Drawing Exchange Format) file is a universal format for storing CAD models. Each file contains a series of lines which identify each part of a particular piece of furniture. This allows you to program a CNC machine to follow these lines and cut out a great piece of furniture.
A SVG file (Scalable Vector Graphics) is a vector graphic format, which is ideal for saving sharp and scalable design files as two-dimensional shapes and lines. In some applications the use of a SVG allows you to skip the CAD process. In many cases, making fabrication easier.
Every digital fabrication file comes with two PDF (Portable Document Format) files.
The first is the Assembly Guide:
Every Assembly Guide is unique to each product in the Frontier Design library. They are simple instructions for you to follow in order for you build your piece of furniture. Any extra parts or hardware are also listed making assembly a breeze.
The second is SVG Cutting Guidelines:
Just a simple files making sure you are on point with what should be done with your SVG file to ensure you know exactly what to do when it comes to cutting time!

Don’t worry, we of course have a free file for you to download, check out and make if you want… If you do, we are sure you’ll be back for more! Enjoy.
Finishes, finishes, finishes
An un-oiled product is an unfinished one. When it comes to oiling time we recommend Osmo Polyx-oil. It’s a Hardwax-Oil wood finish that is derived from natural vegetable oils and waxes. Resistant to water, dirt, beer, wine, cola and saliva. We usually go for the 3044 Raw version.
