Fairly new to Glowforge & Inkscape and after a few hours looking, I can’t find a solution to my problem. I’m fairly certain something got screwed up in the process of converting my dxf into svg, but I’m not experienced enough to know what.
Exported a sketch from Autodesk Inventor to dxf
Converted dxf to svg (Inkscape kept reporting a failure when trying to import the dxf directly)
Tweaked the svg to color the lines and add a fillet.
Loaded the svg into Glowforge and everything looked good
It took me a bit to figure out that I had to look at each layer glowforge saw. You have to make sure each h one is set to engrave, score or cut. The one I did, it wouldn’t recognize one of them as engravable so I used score which actually worked well for my project.
This is a long shot but looking at the art there are areas that didn’t cut that look like there are duplicate lines - they’re showing up a different shade of purple when I upload it. I can’t check the art because I don’t have that program on this computer - but if there are duplicate lines it will not do anything.
Try https://convertio.co/image-converter/ to go from dxf to SVG (or many other formats). It should give you a good first step. The image looks pretty good to me but needs some clean-up after conversion.
