So Les, I bought the software and use it and I’m not Pooh pooping it. But it isn’t as intuitive as vectric software.
It seems dxf’s bring themselves in on a layer that they were created on. I noticed this today while using Vcarve pro, my dxf’s remembered the layer that I created them on. From videos it’s says once a layer is created it can’t be deleted, well sort of, all layer should show, but they don’t. A problem I was having was with a downloaded dxf, they would come in on layer “black” or “colored” or some random number. I had a hell of a time figuring what was going on. My goal was to take a sheet, label it say 2001#1, cut out some stuff, the be able to go back to that remnant sheet at a later date, to better use the material. I might bring in 5 separate files. Anyway, these files should either have a “do you want to add to layer x” I expected—new file, add dxf, add 2nd dxf, these should be on same layer.
Long winded I guess, I don’t know if these layers from different source cause the crashes, I think it is, but yesterday sheet cam crashed 3 separate times.
S scaling is also an issue, dxf’s from vcarve are fine, but if I modify a dxf from some source in Inkscape the scaling is always off. Not sure if the output is metric or some other issue.
