Makercam image showing as line in groundcontrol

HI guys…

I am struggling to export gcode…

I am trying to export a simple svg shape, I have followed the simple youtube video.

I select the image I want to cut
CAM - profile operation
CAM - calculate all
CAM - export gcode

but when I open in ground control I just get a single line…

Any tips??

cheers

To little information. A screenshot perhaps?
Do you get the blue outline after ‘calculate all’?
What are you using for the .svg?
Are the preferences set in makercam according to your .svg program?

Thanks for the reply!!

It was a very rookie mistake.

When I was setting the depth I was not putting the value as a negative (forgot the -)

Whoops
