Hello Fellow Forgers!
I have been busy forging away since FiendFyre arrived a few weeks ago. You know, - working on things like kerf and all that. My focus has been designing in Fusion 360 and inkscape. I decided to try and start a project in fusion then adjust for kerf in inkscape just to get a feel how things work. (I assure you, it will be one special Sharpie Holder when it is done!) I got the kerf part (Or at least I think I do - believe it or not) by making the adjustments that @jules wrote in her tutorial. That was great! I then hit a snag. The sketches I laid out in Fusion 360 came into inkscape with all the right dimension. When I place the design into the GFUI and cut the pieces the whole design was smaller. For example, the length of my object in fusion was 120mm. It went into inkscape (where i translated it into inches) and measured 4.79ish inches. It came out of the glow forge at about 113 mm. I looked around the forums for such a discussion and there was some dpi and accuracy discussion, but that did not seem quite right, although I am not that familiar with all the details of either of the apps so I could be wrong. The reduction in size seems consistent across the whole model because the notches all snap fit nicely (still surprised at the kerf success!!)). Is there a fusion inscapes GFUI golden ratio I am missing? Any help is greatly appreciated!!
