  • Difficulty creating HPGL .plt files in Linux

    Does anybody know of software that will let me convert files into HPGL either by importing and saving as HPGL or else straight file conversion? I have several formats I can save to using my design software for my logo, but none of them are .hpgl.

    I've tried Cenon, Inkscape, qCad, and Libreoffice Draw and all of them either don't have HPGL or else don't properly save it in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I tried a USB install of 15.10, which allowed me to satisfy dependencies for the latest version of Cenon (4.04, I believe), but it still couldn't save a .plt file which was usable (always ends up just being a 32 byte file, with no data).

    If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. It's possible that the vector data in my other file formats isn't plottable into HPGL format at all or something, but I really need assistance from someone more familiar with these formats and usage.

  • Missing FPD Files

    Hi
    I've managed to loose lots of my fpd files.I usually save them in the frontpanels folder at programfiles/front design but they are missing.It's just the newer files that are missing.I copied the whole front design folder to another hard drive before a format but they haven't copied along with the older files.Have they been saved somewhere else and I've missed saving them?

    Is it possible to engrave an arc segment. If so how do I do that in FPD?

  • Free Contour and Os

    Trying to have a LOTUS logo milled. When I import the logo the O seems to have its center milled out as well. How do I address this?

    Also, does the mill tool simply follow the contour of the dxf lines, or mill out the entire area within each letter?
