Thread: Inkscape

  1. #1
    I have created a drawing in inkscape
    its a square border the size of a coaster with a motif in the centre
    try as I might I can't get it to load in cut2d or any other software
    the square loads ok but not the motif inside
    what do I need to change it to and save it as to allow it to open
    many thanks

    Inscape's native .dxf export isn't very good. Try this one:

    Thanks for the info guys
    its now working it looked like I hadn't converted the image to a proper vector
    after about 3 goes it worked
    the DXF worked too but I think it is a bit flakey
