Sheet cam is resizing my drawings

Hello all, Happy Holidays.

I apologize in advance if this has been addressed already, I looked around but found no answer.

My sheetcam (Latest Version) is resizing my drawing (svg) as it comes in from Adobe Illistrator (Latest Version). As an example, I create a 4" square box in AI and save it as an svg, I import the drawing into sheetcam, leaving the scailing set to 1:1 and the DPI at 96.

I end up with a box in sheetcam thats 3" square rather than 4".

I am more than sure I have missed a setting somewhere but I cant find it.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Again I am sorry for the fundamental nature of the question.



What dpi is Adobe saving the SVG as?

If it’s saving as 90 dpi and you’re opening at 96 dpi, that would explain the size difference.

I dont see where that info is displayed in AI as I save as an SVG.

It’s going to be in the settings somewhere.

It doesn’t really matter though, because you can just try importing to Sheetcam as 90dpi to see if that works.

Edit: I just googled it and AI saves at 72dpi by default. No other modern program uses that resolution, so you’ll need to figure out how to change that to 90 or 96. You could also do the math and scale it when you import.

Edit#2 : I did the math and if you import at 1.33 to 1 scale it should be the correct size.
