Sheetcam to inkscape- drawing gets smaller

Postby Pat4rd » Fri May 12, 2017 5:51 am

Hey guys, stayed up till 6am trying to figure out why my drawing goes from 11" in Inkscape to 2-3" in sheet cam. I know it's converting it to metric somehow but I believe I have all my settings on inches. When loading sheetcam I select inches.. what am I missing? Going to sleep for a few hours and go back at it.

When you load the drawing select metric instead of inches. It could be that your drawing has been saved in metric even though you are viewing it in inches.
