DXF v SVG files – What he said!

I had problems with exporting files so the laser cutter company can understand them and they are accurate.  The reason behind it is me using the free, open source software Inkpad (and my lack of knowledge in this area).  It’s a good vector drawing app but there are limitations when exporting especially to .dxf files (Drawing Interchange/Exchange Format).  Here is the post a question of mine prompted from exeter-laser.co.uk, definitely worth a read if you need to export SVG (scaleable vector format) to DXF:

If you need to export .dxf files from an Apple Mac, here is a link to free to download (with restrictions) DXF software from a nice German company:  http://www.schaeffer-ag.de/
