I solved the problem for now.
You can see the result in the "Christmas theme laser engraving works awards collect 12.7 - 12.24".
I converted the jpg with Corel Photopaint to b/w-bitmap.
The conversion of the details was much better than with the path conversion from Inkscape.
I cutted the picture with the mask function in three pieces with the same hight and a small overlap.
There were no problems to open the bitmaps with EleksCam.
I had to choose the outline mode and set the same hight for all three pieces an the job was done
without further problems. the fit of the pieces was perfect.
Nonetheless it would be interesting to know what exactly happens in Inkscape when you cut out a
piece of a picture, save it as a new picture and there is still the whole original picture like a "invisible ghost"
in the background.
Perhaps we can get eleksmaker folk to post updated version of plugin with correct scaling value for newer inkscapes? I want to imagine the issue is on inkscape's end and some internal changes as to how scale works recently (at least from all my googling). I could test if the scaling works when reducing inches by the same ratio in a few days.
I would call this pretty close. Few steps I would alter. Put your stroke to .1mm otherwise your image size will be off. Also move your image to 0,0 on the x y positions. That way when you dxf it your image isnt in negative space. Some programs wont like that.
nope. Best technique I've found is cutting squares. I know my 3 mm wood should take no more than 6 passes so I just keep adjusting a 8 mm square until I get it to cut in 4-6 passes then I know I'm set at that height. After doing even a little bit of work youll end up with tons of scrap to to work with. Some people do test lines. I like squares.
