Carbide Create SVG Import Issue


(Will Winder) #1

I was playing around with a model downloaded from MakeCNC, and came across a problem when opening it with carbide create.

Software versions
Inkscape 0.91 /w Gcodetools v1.7
Carbide Create 313
makercam - whatever is online today

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open provided .dxf and open with inkscape, then save-as to convert to svg. Files created with “Plain SVG” and “Inkscape SVG” both have the same behavior.
  2. Open .svg file with Carbide Create, the lines for engraving are not present.
  3. Open .svg file with MakerCam, the model looks correct.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention!

Our support for non-closed paths needs some work — looping in @robgrz and @edwardrford — hopefully they can add this to our suite of test files.
