I wish to use LibreCAD to make a drawing and cut a design using an Epilog laser cutter.
The Epilog uses a special printer driver (on Windows) in their attempt to give users easy flexibility across a range of different software tools. If a line is very thin (say 0.001 inches) this line is interpreted as a vector (cut), whereas a thicker line is interpreted as a "filled" area and rastered, say to make a toned laser engraving of an image.
I usually work with LibreCAD on Linux or OSX systems, and transfer files across to the Windows machine at fabrication time.
Is there an easy way to tell LibreCAD to set a line width of 0.001 inches?
At the moment I can use it - but the workflow is not very convenient.
Save a DXF in LibreCAD, open it in Inkscape (which doesn't work very well on OSX), change the line widths in the drawing using Inkscape, print it to a PDF, check that the scale is correct, bring that PDF across to the Windows machine, and "print" it.
I wish there was an easier, convenient way.
Any suggestions or ideas? Thanks!
