New version of Carbide create

Just installed it… works great, except carbide motion says the gcode is invalid.

Could we please just be able to save the files as .dxf or .svg? then I could get around the compatibility issue easily.

Right now I have a beautiful piece of work that I can’t do anything with but look at it and wish…

Also svg and dxf describe geometry whereas gcode describes movements and other related parameters.
