The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Problem saving file as .plt
« on: October 26, 2017, 12:09:34 PM »
Hello everyone. I'm brand new to this forum so please let me know if this question should be posted in another area. I need a file format that can be used for a laser engraver rather than a cutter. This is the forum I found that's closest to what I'm doing. I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 on a Windows 7 PC. I can't save my file as .plt. The acceptable vector formats for the laser software are dxf, ai, plt, dst, dsb. I found instructions online explaining how to install UniConvertor to solve the problem but after following the instructions as best I could I still cannot save as .plt. I get an error message when I try to save. Can anyone help with this? Thanks!
