So, how about that DXF support? I just tried to upload a DXF from Solidworks and I got an unhelpful error message. And the upload page doesn’t include any list of workable file formats, so I can’t know what to try next. Pretty crappy.
SVG is the go to format. The FAQ lists JPG, PNG, SVG, PDF, EPS.
Sure, but Glowforge promised DXF support a long time ago and it isn’t here. So, what’s the hold-up? I don’t want to have to use a DXF to SVG shim.
Agreed, I’m much more comfortable in SolidWorks or Fusion360. I wish I didn’t have to convert to SVG.
There is a bunch of good info the the read over all. What I’ve been doing as suggested by users in that thread is make the part into a drawing>change any lines that need different operations to different colours>save as pdf>drop the pdf into GFUI. Sometimes I’ll bring the pdf into inkscape if I need some sort of graphic thing done as it works better there.
Sometimes it is easier to convert the line colours in inkscape then SW drawing interface .
+1… DXF support would be greatly appreciated.
