CarbideCreate Beta 285-286 Converter

I have written a utility to convert a drawing file (extension .c2d) from beta version 285 to beta 286. It is written in Python 3.4 and seems to work well for my limited examples. If you have Python 3 installed, copy these files to a directory, change their extension to '.py', and run them with a Python console.

The conversion program will likely work with some older beta versions, but I am new to using CarbideCreate, so can only test back to beta 284.

Please let me know if you have problems using the programs. I am working on a more versatile utility (also in Python) that will allow me to mirror a drawing, join two drawings together (side-to-side), overlay two drawings into one, break a drawing into a set of distinct parts (and their toolpaths), etc. It's coming along slowly, and if this utility is well received, I'll post the newer utility when it is ready.
