I’m really banging my head against the wall here.
I need to go from Sketchup to Easel. There’s no point in using either (and CNC) if I can’t have confidence in the measurements.
My sketchup file is in inches. The file is absolutely flat. I exported in 2d, DXF, and then imported into Eael with the DXF import tool.
The notion that I should have to create a rectangle and check everything on every import seems crazy to me.
Surely there is a way to get an accurate file from one program to another.
Easel product managers, this is a dead breaker for me (and probably for ~20% of your community.
Solid woodworkers do not want to create their files in Easel–it’s easy but not nearly robust enough for woodworking design. Many of us are legacy users of Sketchup.
Please help me out here.
Note: one thing that could be a source of error is that DWF import asks about the path inside, on, or outside, which seems redundant to the cutting settings elsewhere.
However, with a 1/8" bit, this would not be adding as much error as I am seeing.
Appreciate any help.
