Added line fragments when importing .dxf file or converting .pdf file

  • Zax,
    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.

    Those lines look deliberate, do you have hatching enabled?

    E-mail the DXF to me and I will take a look.

    SVG was developed as a web graphics format so it isn't ideal for CAD.

    DWG is a proprietary format and licensing it is very expensive, AutoCAD developed DXF (drawing exchange format) to share drawings with other software so it is the ideal format to use.

  • 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!

    No problem. Now you know how hatching works ;)
