Trying to save an svg with Inkscape. When in the laser window the picture looks fine but when I export it to the main screen it exports as a line on the x axis. Anyone else had svg trouble?
Can you upload your file so I can test it for you?
SVG import is not as failsafe as it should be.
Here is what I was trying to make. Looks fine in the preview but after I generate G-code and load it this is what it looks like.
Thanks for looking into it
Here’s G-code generated by Snapmakerjs v2.4.5.

This is the SVG:
This is my GCODE view:

What am I doing wrong? I use the version 2.4.6 of Snapmaker.
<text> tag is not recognized by Snapmakerjs. You may need to use the text mode for now.
Hi @parachvte thank you for the answer.
text-tag is a basic feature in SVG and it is not supported.Wow… I’ve designed several company signs, and now I can not laser engrave some simple SVGs. This is really frustrating.
I’ve now converted my text into a path. The result is much better but still faulty.
This is my SVG now:
This is the result:
The preview looks also good, but the gcode looks buggy.
Does anybody know how to fix this strange behaviour?
I finally got the workaround for SVGs in Incscape that it will processed correctly within Snapmakerjs:
First convert the contour into a path for a single letter. After that merge the letter parts into a single object.
Do that with every single letter. And then the result will be like this!
Now the result looks like this:
