Importing files from corel are scaled down
« on: May 11, 2015, 08:22:45 AM »
Hello I am using inkscape to generate Gcode for a laser cutter I am building. I have two commercial cutters in the family and we use Corel Draw. When I import a 400mm square and work area for example it opens in inkscape at 320mm so it seems there is an exact or almost exact 20% downscale.

The way my brain works for fast solutions is I would design a square around the entire work area then resize the whole design back to 400mm in inkscape.

I am sure there are tons of people that use Corel and use the more extensive plugins for inkscape to create Gcode that have had this problem and can help.
