I have designed a few parts in CATIA V5 (which I am familiar with) created SVG files and tried them in easel and the result wasn’t good. I am trying to clean the svg in inkscape but i need pointers because my knowledge of inkscape is limited…
Software used: Easel; CNC machine: Maslow
I have included two files (hopefully it worked): one is an example of the svg file that I am having issues with (there is more reason why I am trying to understand how to fix it) and an image of an attempt to fill the shape which is not conclusive either…
All of the lines “nodes” aren’t connected, I’m not familiar with InkScape enough to fix this so I used CorelDraw. Maybe someone who is more experienced with InkScape could help.
I wasn’t able to join all the nodes so I converted the outline to an object and welded them together.
Hope this helps,
One additional question:
After the steps you provided all the shapes are joined and easel is adding only 4 tabs for all of them. I would like to separate them to add tabs on each one. I tried to use the un-group function as your first step but it does not work…
Edit: Playing in easel I increased the number of tabs and moved them on the different shapes that does work…
Pics you will have sadly not much progress made… I started to cut test pieces for a feel on how it was going to look like (in a crappy material) but that made so much dust that I had to move the machine outside and then it stopped working… so I figure out what the issue was, cut cable, but took forever for something that stupid.
Here is the only pics that I have so far:
