Shape must have non-negative width

Hy, i am using x-carve for some weeks. Now, there is a problem, i’m having. When i want to import a dxf there is coming "shape must have non-negative “width” and “height”.
The same dxf i was able to import some days before.
Thanks for your help. good bye from Germany

you can attach the file here using this button and I can see if I can get it to work on my end…

Personally I always convert .dxf to .svg prior to importing and that imports flawlessly

Same error here. File I had no problem working with are no longer working. Getting the same error

I’ve had the issue occur now, a new file I had never tried b4 though… went back and tried some older files and those all worked fine… so I don’t know if this is a new issue, but definitely worth a report… I’m going to submit a help ticket for it since it seems like a new issue… could be caused by recent updates and not caught during regression testing…

Change the line mode to separate

Did that, no more error but design is butcher…

Greetings from South Africa - Have exact same issues, started occurring yesterday (23 Feb 2022), All new dxf file imports giving “shape must have non-negative width and height” error, as well as some older files that previously loaded without issue. If “separate” lines used, preview loads, but import is corrupt (Lines/Tool path out of registration.

Should be fixed guys!

I just got this in my email, but I’m out right now…
Maybe one of yall can try your file again :+1:

PS, thank you for getting back to me about this Julie

Also received a reply below from CS (Jenna) - Worked for me, although I had to re-install the Easel Driver and reload my machine:

"…You might want to try these steps in the meantime:

Since Easel is browser-based it relies on this memory space for function. Your Browser may not have enough memory space to save. You can also try these steps:

  2. updating the browser
