        I tried importing a DXF converted from an SVG into OpenSCAD, but the curved edges come out really rough-looking and angular. Is there something I can do about that?
      • InPhase
        koz_: On the pstoedit line, add -xscale 8 -yscale 8
      • koz_
        InPhase: OK, I'll try that. Thanks!

        koz_, if your model is small, it might be related to this: https://github.com/openscad/openscad/issues/999

        peepsalot: Define 'small' for this purpose?
      • peepsalot
        koz_, about 1 unit wide, like the example in the bug i linked

      • depending how it was exported, it could be at the wrong scale. openscad, and stl files don't really suppotr the concept of units, but (assuming general 3d printing purposes) dimensions are generally considered to be in mm, so need to make sure your DXF coordinates are scaled correctly for that
      • koz_
        peepsalot: I use the process described in the Wikibooks page, which I think sets -mm for exactly that reason.
      • It's going SVG -> EPS -> DXF, which might be the reason I'm getting some less-than-ideal results.

        koz_, ah, i haven't tried that specific process before. inkscape can open svg and save directly as dxf, i'd try that probably

        peepsalot: Did not know that. I'll definitely give that a try instead.
      • Can it do that via its CLI, or do you have to actually do it from the GUI?
      • peepsalot
        not sure about CLI, it might be possible, i just dont use it
      • InPhase
        koz_: I already tested the fix I suggested on the file you were using, and it fixed that for me.

        InPhase: Awesome, thanks!
