Hershey text import from INKSCAPE


(Richard Hamilton) #1

ws-engravingIs anyone else having issues with single path Hershey text when saved from Inkscape as a plain SVG. OR INKSCAPE SVG.
I open it in Carbide create to try and do a simple text engrave and the letters are all mixed up and not even letters anymore.

That file doesn’t seem to make use of single paths as the Hershey fonts afford.

The 3D simulation is a bit rough, but the blue toolpaths seem fine.
