    I'm trying to import an svg. The import drops several lines. Here's what it should look like.

    Can you save it as a .dxf maybe? Just a suggestion to try if you are in a hurry. I am not familiar with the software, but I thought it works with .dxf.

    SVG is supported, but NB that the entities be "paths" (In inkscape, Select all, Path, Object to Path, google how to Convert to Paths for the SVG editor you use). - probably those corners were not exported as Path entities.

    @Giarc, it support SVG (paths), Bitmaps (Gets traced to vector using potrace on the fly), DXF (R12 Polyline, no Splines supported, Explode to Polyline in your CAD), Gerber 274x (Vector Data) and Excellon Drill files as inputs
