the R12 is the one to use.
It depends on the software whether a format works or not. I only use R13 from Illustrator, it is the only version in which object size and drawing units are exported correctly. You have to test every software. From Autocad itself I export R12. CamBam exports version 11/12 (LT R1/R2).
I always start testing with the oldest possible version. External references, blocks and similar should not be in the file. CamBam sometimes has problems with binary formats as well. Also splines cannot process some programs in DXF.
But these are basic rules if you give DXF files for further processing. 
Let's wait and see what maurits writes.

I'm struggling to understand that the scribble we saw in a previous image, here https://cambamcnc.com/forum/index.php?topic=8714.msg69400#msg69400
was caused by Windows 10

Maybe a wrong or not correctly working video driver? I suppose for drawing geometry the GPU hardware functions are used and the driver sits between the GPU and the application software.

I guess all thats left is installing a fresh copy of windows 10, or go back to windows 7.

Thanks for your help anyway people!
