Hey everyone, Being new to Easel and the X-carve I would like to see if an issue I am having is user error and something that I am simply overlooking or a actual workflow problem when it comes to Easel. I am starting with a fairly simply open box design that I put together in NanoCad (free autocad clone) I saved the file that was created as a .DXF file and then opened in QCad/Cam which has a SVG export function. I am able to import the SVG file into Easel but the offset path wont change from cutting on the line to cut on the outside. I am getting a error that states "Cannot offset open paths if you’ve imported an SVG check for open paths and join them before importing:. I checked my CAD drawing multiple times and my polylines are joined /closed. I opened the DXF file on my work computer that I run AutoCAD LT on and viewed the SVG through another viewer. Qcad/cam has a function to simulate and everything appears to be fine when going through the process.
Has anyone else run into this? I saw the app that Paul created for a offset function and was curious if this was what has to be used to get around this or if I may just be doing something wrong.
Thanks in advance for the help!
