Exporting as DXF fails, need for xmas!

Postby Heleghir » Tue Dec 12, 2017 12:47 am

I have a file that I am trying to get to a .dxf for use on a CNC machine, when exporting as a .dxf from inkscape, i am left with a 5kb size file that contains no data. If I export as a vector PDF to import into AutoCAD to convert it to dxf from there, it contains no vector data and can only be imported as a raster image which does not help me any.

Need this as a .dxf by end of the day today to get it cut on the CNC in time for christmas present, please help

Please attach or link to the svg file so we can take a look.
Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/
