Svg file not working

What other file can be used to cut other then svg?
I have a file im working on but when i save it as a svg it screws it all up and i only get part of the file. Can any one let me know what im doing wrong.
Thank you

The Glowforge also recognizes pdf files. Maybe share your file and explain in a little more detail what is not working out for you.

Try using a different browser like google or Firefox and see if that helps.

Oh no! I’m sorry you’ve hit a snag. Glowforge is compatible with JPG , PNG , SVG , PDF , and other file formats. You can create Glowforge-compatible files from a variety of different software platforms like Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, CorelDraw, Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, Autodesk 360, & Sketchup. If you feel comfortable, you can share your SVG file with us here to investigate further. If not, feel free to email it to and we’d be happy to take a look.

@brammersguns would you let us know if you’re still experiencing trouble uploading files?

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from you, so I’m going to close this post.
