Silhouette Studio DXF Import Error

When importing a dxf into SS for cutting on the Cameo 3, I kept getting this error:

"The file you are attempting to access could not be loaded. It may be corrupt."


After battling Silhouette Studio for a few hours I finally identified what the problem was. I was working in illustrator and there was a small polygon buried in the artwork. The little triangle had an overall size of less than 0.0009" and was the sole element restricting the dxf import process into SS. If I delete or increase the size of this little polygon, everything imported fine. Hopefully this post helps you remedy a similar error.

I'm sure there are nice scripts or special selection features to identify these issues automatically but I'm not there yet ...
