getting weird lines after importing dxf to T2
« on: February 05, 2017, 08:11:08 PM »
after importing an inkscape dxf into T2, it shows up all weird, sort of scrambled with extra lines, why is this?
ive attached the dxf, and a screenshot of what it looks like when in T2

ok i cant attach the dxf, because it is 9mb, but in the t2 screenshot you can see how the dxf is all weird, like its a cheap sketch with out of alignment lines,
the dxf is perfect and sharp, and if i burn what t2 has it looks like the image

It would help to see the dxf. Can you share via Dropbox, dropfile, google, box or something of the like?

When opening with FreeCAD I get "Cannot normalize null vector" and then just two triangle/arrows. It open ok with librecad. At least it show a clock face and no error messages.

What program did you generate the DXF from?

Looks like he said Inkscape. I opened it in Autodesk DWG trueview and it looks a lot better

I missed that, well following my instructions Inkscape should work.

I will have to look at the code when I get back to the office next week.

what seemed to fix it is using the 'flatten beizers' in inkscape after tracing and before applying any other extensions.
