Ability to print to paper my carbide create design

(Raj Batra) #1

Before I start to carve out my design in carbide create (with shapeoko 3), I’d like to print it to scale on paper. This will allow me to position double stick tape accurately on my cutting object so the bit won’t hit the tape.

I don’t see a way to print - any suggestions? I did try exporting it to SVG & DXF (using approach from here: https://www.myerswoodshop.com/blog/cctosvg) - but the scaling isn’t preserved.

CC403 has an option to export to SVG:

and when exported and opened in Inkscape a 4x4 in. square is 4 x 4 inches.

Nice - just tried it out and it works. I put a little circle at the origin so I know where to start the bit relative to the design and it all exported out (and imported in to Inkscape) to scale.

Thanks!
