I am having them re-cut. The company I work for paid for them because they were sent in with another job to be cut at the
same time. Kind of like a bonus. just with materials instead of money. They use a different program that puts out DXF files
I am the only one who uses Fusion 360 ( not sure for how much longer though ). and Yes the new cut files will have other info
attached to make sure they are the correct size.

Are they, by any chance, exactly 2.54x the size they should be?
ie, a DXF in cm has been interpreted in inches?

The issue with DXF is that they are dimensionless so the scale of the units needs to be set when its opened in CAM/Nesting sftware.
Andy's suggestion sounds plausible.
F360 DXF's have proven reliable for me if created via the method I shared earlier.(provided they are scaled correctly when opened :) )I have cut many nested with Sheetcam without issue. I do remember almost getting caught with a provided  DXF in inches becoming 25.4x larger than it should have been because I blindly accepted the default scale of mm.

So I have spent part of this week working on a diode matrix for my MPG panel. Since I will be using MUX
I could have actually used more but for now that doesn't seem necessary. After Building my prototype
I will need to design my actual card. If everything goes well the new board should be at least half of the
prototype's size.
the Selector switch will connecting to one of 9 selections
1= OFF
2= X
3= Y
4= Z
5= 4th
6= Feed Override
7= Spindle Override
8= Jog Override
9= Step Mode

The 4 position Increment selector
1= 0.0001" or 4th 1.0 degree
2= 0.001" or 4th 0.1 of a degree
3= 0.01 or 4th 0.01 of a degree
4= Continuous Jog

This is what the prototype looks like

So it has been a while since I have done an update on the mill. I had finally clawed out some time to work on it. No video yet but I will be doing one soon. For now here are some pics.

I got some more work done on the G0619 this week. This week was building the break out box for the mill itself.
Here are some pictures of the project.
