    Yes Edu version of Cad will open both file types, though normal Cad will not.

    the file that my teacher friend sent me (dfx) when i imported it into cad 9 had double lines throughout the file. I cleaned it all up and put on usb stick(cdl) , took it to him . when we opened the cleaned up file in his edu version 9 . the double lines all came back. I have had double lines from imported filed before but never experienced this before. Could his edu version be causing the double lines?

    Are you creating a tool path and showing the original as well as the tool path, that would be a double line. The edu version operates the same as cdl version, just different native file extensions.
