Image Scale Being Changed Upon Upload

Hi Everyone,

I’m working on a project that is a ruler that will be going on a wall that has markings every inch and whenever I upload my file to the app the scaling of the markings is not correct. I have checked my markings and distances in Solidworks, Gimp, and Inkscape and they all look good but when I upload the images the markings no longer have the correct distance between them. Any ideas what could be causing this issue and how to fix it?


search DPI in the forums, you’ll find lots of information on what to check to make sure you’re in the correct scale.

If you create a file in a vector design software like Inkscape and save the file as a Plain SVG, you can expect the scale to be maintained when you upload it to the Glowforge app.

I’m going to close this thread - if you have any other questions, go ahead and post a new topic.
