I am looking to a editor and verifier program to test out nc code. I need to test the code against a imported .dxf file to confirm geometry is not violated.

Does Ncplot have the ability?

I've done it the other way, and saved a plotted program as a dxf, and exported that from ncplot into autocad overlaying it to see if there were any errors.
It works really well.

NCPlot does allow you to specify a DXF file to be used as a background to your backplot. On the machine configuration go to the viewport page and you will see a spot where you can specify the file you want to display.
