I am getting alot of files in my xcarve folder. i have modified some so they arent the same as the original drawing. Is there a way i can save them to my laptop and upload them again when i need them?
I had a similar question this past weekend.
Try this, and see if it works for your needs:
- Project → Download Project (zip) - it saves a zip file to your computer containing a text file with some settings and an SVG file
- when you want to upload it again, Project → Import SVG - your tabs won’t be the same, but from what I can tell, the artwork is the same - I imported the art back in to the same file, and I’ve only done this once, but it looks like it would work.
I did have to adjust where the end-mill was cutting from “on the line” to either inside or outside the line.
It saves a text file and a Chrome html document
You can save the Gcode as a text file to a laptop/external drive and open it in Notepad. I generate my gcode to a thumb drive as my x carve is not inside the house where there isn’t internet access.
Just a thought - You may have your computer set up to open SVG files in Chrome. I use a Mac. If you use a PC, you would have to define the program that opens SVG files as something else (Inkscape?) so that it opens correctly.
