Converting an SVG to DXF
« on: January 11, 2019, 09:41:32 PM »

I have another problem with a conversion.  I created this box using the MakerCase website, then copied onto the
sides of the box a tribal tattoo symbol I thought was pretty cool.  Then I saved it as a DXF but when I open it in
T2, I only get two of the components of the file - the cutout for the top, and one of the tattoos.

The original file (caseplans tall.svg) is what was downloaded from the website.

What's going on?

The DXF looks the same in QCAD as it does T2Laser so I suspect it's importing correctly and the export was the issue.

I loaded the SVG (resized and moved to origin) and saved it. Now it load correctly.

What program are you using?

Thanks.  I was using Inkscape to do all of my work.  I'm still a novice at this.  I'll learn more
eventually.  I saw a video someone posted the other day, but I can't find it again.
