Were the layers created in Inkscape using it’s concept of “layers”? SVG itself has no such concept.  Consequently, different applications will implement layers in different ways using different conventions. The Eggbot Control extension only knows the convention Inkscape uses.  It does not understand, say, the convention used by Corel or Illustrator.  (Indeed, if you do this in Corel or Illustrator and then export as SVG, the layers are probably all merged into one — the concept of the layers may not even be exported to foreign formats by those programs.)
