Inkscape converting files to G9

Post by Steamcity » Sun May 23, 2021 10:15 am

Our new CNC hasn’t made a spark yet. We cannot get any type of file including drawing our own on Inkscape to stop converting to SVG. We can’t make it G9? Seems we need to download additional programs? Why? Why use Inkscape if it’s not user friendly? Owner of GoFab seems to love it?

Please explain G9 is that a file name extension. Inkscape will save files in SVG along with many other type including DXF :HaHa
Inkscape is a great program for drawing projects for Plasma cutting :Yay

It appears to be some sort of Spanish program called Gest.

I can't quite tell what it is exactly, but it doesn't look like a drawing file format.
