Default DFX files - What next!

Ok, sorry for the newbie bonehead question... but

Once I have these really cook DXF files, what do I do to open them and print them out in 1:1 scale?

Please enlighten me.

Take the disk to a blueprint shop.
The .dxf files I've had printed full-size took only a few seconds to do on their large printer.
Kinko's might do it, but for a lot more money, and bit of a hassle.

WOW thanks for the lighting fast reply.

I kind of figured that's what I'd have to do. I'm in France and don't know of any Kinko's around here close.

Thanks,

Most CAD programs will print them too. You can download viewers for free rather easily. Do a Google search for "DFX VIEWER" and you'll fins something.
