I am trying to scale plans for a puzzle rocking chair but the problem seems that when I change the scale the notches for the 1/2" plywood to slide into changes, I can scale using Inkscape save as a svg file and bring it into Makecam but there is no way to measure in Makercam the notches to make sure there still 1/2".
I was constantly frusterated by the lack of any way to meaasure in MakerCAM. I ended up usually inserting a new square in MakerCAM which was 1/2 inch and then moving it around to check the widths. It’s not ideal, but it works…kinda
You can generate GCode in inkscape. Extensions->gcodetools. Everything I’ve cut so far has been done in Inkscape.
You have to duplicate your drawing into 2 different layers: one for the main cuts for all but the last layer . the filnal layer has the tabs and then you manually have to delete sections of your drawing for the tabs, but it would be scaled. I can write up instructions on how I do it if you want. It was not inuitive to figure out, but I got it to work and only had to learn one program to do it.
That would be great if you don’t mind. Thanks
