    Hello, I have been using Inkscape to make my SVG files and have had no problems when opening them in OpenBuild CAM until know. I see the the file is loaded but I can't see it. What am I doing wrong? I can also highlight it and it tells me that there are toolpaths to calculate and I still can't see it.

    1) make sure you did Object to Path from the Paths menu (Select all, Path, Object to Path)
    2) Check that the correct Units is used (PX)

    Other than that, please post the file :) Always a good idea to include the files you have trouble with, as we can throw them into the application here and "see" whats wrong (;
