There are several example drawings that are installed with the DXFTool.  They can all be found in the folder C:\DxfToolPro

All of these screencaps were taken from CorelDRAW running a CorelDRAW based DXF visualizer.  This tool displays LINE segments in BLUE and ARC segments in RED.  The segments are separated by small WHITE dots so you can see what the DXF file really contains.

'Circle.cdr' is the simple circle used in the Introduction and Quick Start.

Here we are emphasizing the text and we also had to zoom in to 1800% to be able to see the EXTREMELY small lines that CorelDRAW makes for it's DXF files.  The bumps are actually the dots we use to show the segment boundaries in our DXF visualizer.  Here the segments are SO SMALL they blend together on the curves.
