Curious Screen effect in linux Sheetcam version

Postby Paint Chip » Wed Jan 24, 2018 2:40 pm

I loaded an svg (in corel draw) of a deer/mountain scene in a saw blade (the one by Ben De Lappe in the file sharing section)) and resized it to 14 in dia. When I loaded it into Sheetcam (linux version) it looked like a football rather than a round circle. But the dimensions on the bottom of the screen said it was the same height in both axes (i.e., round). I loaded it into Command CNC and it still looked like a football (ellipse actually) but the rulers on the screen said the height and width were the same. So I cut the file and low and behold it came out round. Is there some weird screen setting in Sheetcam that might be doing this?

Yep....that's it. I had to look up on the internet how to access the display settings in linux.

Thanks!
