Dxf import error

hi there, have some DXF import issue again.
I tried to import the cutting file from https://www.instructables.com/Laser-Cut-Firemans-Phone-Stand/ (https://content.instructables.com/ORIG/F6M/092I/I27GRXGF/F6M092II27GRXGF.dxf) and this is the result:

It really doesn’t look as it should.

Using 0.9.19 Linux version. Maybe some dxf library linked to LightBurn binary?
this is the list of libraries “out of LB tree”:

Desn’t seem there’s some DXF reading library from the system… anyway, I didn’t find any string “dxf” in all libraries names. So I can’t imagine, why you say that dxf import in your 0.9.19 version is different to mine :frowning:

  tloudev@stodolar /usr/local $ grep -ri dxf LightBurn/* |grep -v lang
  Binary file LightBurn/AppRun matches
  Binary file LightBurn/LightBurn matches
  Binary file LightBurn/lib/libicudata.so.56 matches

But this library comes with LightBurn, so it should use the same behavior, shouldn’t it?

So, I downloaded and installed 0.9.20 right now, and teh result is still the same :frowning:

Looks like it opens OK in Linux Mint with LB 0.9.20

hmmm… so something wrong with my linux Mint :frowning: Please be so kind and export it for me to lbrn, I swear this is the (first and) last time… thanks.

LightBurn doesn’t use external libraries for file importing - I wrote all the importers from scratch.

That said, this file comes in very small, so my suspicion is that you have the DXF Auto-Close setting too high, and it’s merging vertices that shouldn’t be.

What do you have this set to?


HA! That’s it! I have 1.000mm tolerance. After decreasing to 0.001 the image is OK. THANK YOU BOTH guys.

1mm is huge for that setting. I usually default it to 0.01mm, maybe 0.05mm. Personally I have my own set to zero, so things have to be exact to be joined.
