SVG files can use different units and some of them are interpreted differently on different devices. The SVG support of Estlcam Version 7 is very basic and ignores units completely.
Version 8 has a unit selection dialog and the default setting should match a regular Inkscape file.
If it does not work correctly just write me a mail - Estlcam 8 is still an early beta version and I'm a German guy usually testing things in metric units so I'm quite prone to oversee issues with imperial units.

This is a problem that unfortunately happens sometimes - my algorithm to determine outer or inner shape only works 99.9%.
Version 8 now uses an improved algorithm and works correctly with your file (but still may fail in very rare circumstances)

It is known problem with adobe products to have buggy SVG support. I suggest you trying opensource inkscape to open it in vector and export in any kind of formats .

Inkscape is great, esp. for being opensource and free. Inkscape is pretty easy to use and has a lot of neat, hobbyist, plugins that do interesting things.

I am currently using Inkscape for logo designs . I have a XP-Pen Deco Pro drawing pad with a pressure sensitive pen works with inkscape straight out of the box . and yes! it helps my workflow a lot .
