I am working to use my Shapeoko to carve woodblocks for colored printing. This means I to carve different patterns into multiple boards and have the patterns register relative to each other for printing.
I am doing the pattern design work in a Java program that I have written myself and it produces SVG files, one .svg file for each of the woodblocks.
I am having trouble understanding who Carbide Create manages the coordinate system when importing .svg files.
It seems to ignore the “width”,”height”, and “viewBox” attributes in the “” tag. It also seems to set the origin to be y=0 and the x to be whatever is needed to get the greatest x coordinate to be at the bottom of the cutting area.
I found in another forum topic that is assumes the units are pixels and they are mapped to 96 dpi.
I work appreciate information on how the SVG import maps the coordinate system.
