I want to create my own file for engraving.
I thought I understood from the tutorial that using Inkscape would allow me to prepare files for importing that could be used for engraving. I downloaded Inkscape.
My first problem is this…
I want to engrave a microwave oven cabinet front on a wall of a model home which I am making.
The image was created in AutoCad (.dwg)
I can export the file as an SVG (quick or advanced) or a PDF.
I have created this file in two sizes. One with the micro/oven combo full size and one with it scaled down.
When I try to open or import any of these files in Inkscape they do not appear. The files say they are 5 kB 28 px by 50 px. This seems way too small to me.
Please help me understand the steps needed to create a file foe engraving. This has me stumped. It should not be this hard. I’m likely doing something basic wrong or missing steps…
