I am so frustrated! Creating SVG files is a royal pain. I created a file using Graphic (Autodesk) iOS version. I opened it and fixed the font (Inkscape did not have the font). I drew the other elements in Graphic, which appear to be done correctly as a path and get the message…Warning: unable to draw bitmap images; please convert them to line art first. Consider using the “Trace bitmap…” tool of the “Path” menu. Mac users please note that some X11 settings may cause cut-and-paste operations to paste in bitmap copies.ITS not a bitmap….I thought I read all there is concerning creating files, but this is about to make me put this thing on the shelf until someone way smarter than me comes up with an app that says – “do what you want” and I will make it Eggbot ready!Help! Perhaps I could send the file to someone to help me fully understand what is going on.Even the layer that has only text from Inkscape gives me the error above.
One more thing… I noticed last night that the pen motor is not returning to vertical. It is a few degrees right (looking from the front (pen side). I powered off and on. I have not looked to see if there are “reset” or default settings. Or does it matter?BTW, I am having successes and love the EBP.Thanks for your help.
Sorry. It was supposed to me EMS… Evil Mad Scientist not Mad Evil Scientist.When the forum sign in screen displays it gives options. Direct sign in, which does not work and the “Sign in with: Evil Mad Scientist”.
Windell – Should I be able to login to the forums without using the MES link? So far I cannot. I have to use the MES option.
Thanks Windell… I will check it out again. Here is link to a photo… Notice the r and the i as well as the t.
Thanks for the quick reply. After much research I selected a Pro. The Thanksgiving discount played a big role in that decision as well . I have much to learn as I am not experienced in SVG files. I opened a PNG file in Inkscape and saved it as a SVG file, it appears to have worked. And I really don’t understand layers yet. I get the concept, but the practical application was stumping me last night.
I also have more of an interest in spherical items as opposed to eggs. I’m going to start at Hobby Lobby and look for some plain ornaments. I purchased two packs of Sharpie Precision pens that appear to have the shape and size that will fit the penholder, we’ll see.
I downloaded the Github repository to get the example files which seem to be quite good. Searching for artwork and advice (how-to & artwork) on ornaments or spherical items has been less successful than I would’ve thought.
Shel – I visited the FB group that you created. Waiting for you to approve me. My EB is scheduled to be here tomorrow.
Looking forward to contributing to the page.
