Did not realize that hatch was enabled, unchecked it and now it's right! Thanks for the fast response! Some times it's the little stuff that throws us off!

Added line fragments when importing .dxf file or converting .pdf file
Working with T2 laser has been a breeze so far, however I have hit a snag that I can't seem to correct. I've drawn a simple item for my EleksDraw laser to cut out, a rectangle with 2 rounded corners and 3 circles down the center. I've used AutoCad 2004 and saved it as a .dxf file and Inkscape and saved it as a .pdf file. When imported or converted into T2, for lack of a better description, partial hatch marks appear in the item which then are transmitted to the laser to be cut. I don't want these extra lines, I didn't draw these lines in the rectangle. What do I have to do to get rid of them? Also T2 does not import any .svg or .dwg files, why? This limits what I can do in Inkscape and AutoCad to be able to do more in T2.
Thank you for your reply.
RE: EleksDraw Assembly and Setup for T2Laser
First off, Thank you for doing this! Would have made my assembly so much easier.
I received my EleksDraw last Monday and put it together and took it apart several times before I got it functional, there are differences between the kit I received and the one you have described.
Here are a couple of things I'd like to suggest;
- Your parts list is a little different than what I received, specifically the Hex posts, my kit came with 4-M3x8, 4-M3x10, 6-M3x25 and the 4-M3x16x6 standoffs. This was a problem for the Step 5 assembly, the screws were too long to make a perfect fit for the rollers in the carriage. To make it right with the 8mm Hex posts, 14mm screws and 10 mm screws, I had to remove(grind off about 2mm per screw). This made the belt align without rubbing the rails.
- The orientation of the motor plugs is essential if you attach the circuit board as soon in the original directions. You assembled yours opposite with the plugs facing up.
- When I assembled the carriage, I used a thick book to support it while running the belt around the rollers, it was a little bit of a balancing act , but it made it easier than threading the belt through after the top plate was attached.
Anyway, thanks again for your work!
I also purchased your T2Laser software and it is easier to work with than the EleksCAM for me, thank you for that too!
