Problem outside carve 2 lines


my problem is, if I make a part in for example Solid Works, I save it as a .dxf import it in Adobe Illustrator then save it as .svg

Then I import the .svg file in easel the small thin lines are visible. Then I want to carve the outside of the part, click on outside carve, because for sure I want to have the measuring that I have designed.

Then Easel wants to carve the lines on both sides outside, so it takes a lot auf time and the measuring are not okay.

Here a few pictures:

Here is the contruction in Solid Works

Import the .dxf in Adobe Illustrator:

Import the .svg in Easel:

Set it to “outside”

Then there are “2” Outlines :

I dont know why, had anyone a solution for my issue ? And know how to solve it?

If you attach the SVG file to this thread it may help someone sort the source of the problem.

@GeoffSteer Here is the svg and the dxf.

Do you use Illustrator or inkscape? If Illustrator, could you explain me how to fill it with color and delete the second line?

I dont understand the vector thing, I like Pixel :slight_smile:

is the program by chance exporting the line weight?


so if I zoom to 1600 % I can see it too.

I dont know if the programm is exporting the line weight.

I´ll test it with an otherconstruction.

I was having this issue in Inkscape, I found out I have to remove the line outline and keep the line fill. This creates a single line when importing. It also accounted for the wrong size cuts. Now I use a thin line (Filled only) and the same with any shapes I create. So if I make a circle and do no outline, and only use fill, size it, then import into easel. I get a nice solid shape, the right size, that I can cut with any option without the double line issue.

Hope that helps a little.
