First, maybe the better question is, are there any command line (OSX or open source) DXF/DWG to SVG converters that work well? I use Inkscape now because it works and because I do often use it to add engrave items to something I drew in AutoCAD. But I often find myself doing a lot of this:
Draw in AutoCAD, save, import into Inkscape, save to SVG, Cut, find problem with cut, make AutoCAD change, repeat.
It’s not until I get the cut worked out that I then actually use Inkscape to do any changes other than my SVG conversion, if at all. I know Inkscape has SOME capability at the command line, but can’t find anything that says it can do this. One thing I know I’d need to do is be able to set the scale factor on the command line since I sometimes draw in mm and sometimes in inches, and in my ideal world I’d like to set a position on the page since all AutoCAD imports seem to be way off the page by default and if you don’t move them in Inkscape then the GF also imports way off the bed.
I’m using OSX and am quite familiar with doing command line things, I’d just need to know the arguments that Inkscape needs, or to know if there’s another command line converter out there. Searching seems to find several web based ones and such, but that’s no easier than opening in the Inkscape GUI to me.
Basically I’m looking to vastly simplify my life of going from AutoCAD to GF when I don’t need any additional edits, just conversion. Help?
