Inkscape to makercam dims off? - Change the preferences!

Post by Althiels » Wed Feb 20, 2013 10:14 pm

It looks like my dimensions change when I go from inkscape to makercam? I drew my part in inkscape with a width of 4" and height of 2.25" ish. When you load it into makercam, it changes the dims to a 5" wide and a height of 2.75" ish?

Anyone else have that issue?

Be sure to change the import settings in makercam when you import from inkscape SVG.

Goto Edit -> Edit Preferences -> change the top value from 72 to 90.

That'll fix it.
