Dida,
As CNC Machines are my business, I will reply quickly.
DXF is the acronym for “data transfer file”. It is widely used to make CAD or other information available to any other program.
CAM is the acronym for “computer assisted machining”. So by taking the dxf file you can create a program for the CNC machine to cut the material automatically.
CNC is the acronym for “computerized numeric control”.

In short then, take the CAD design of the frames (dxf), load them into a CAM package in order to tell the machine how to cut them, and then load them on the CNC machine to cut.
