Unfortunately the Eagle most likely will not read such a DXF. The reason lays in used shape types in Inkscape. Most likely the Eagle can import only straight lines. So if we want to import shapes – we must convert them to lines. Example: how to create round PCB shape with round hole in it? They will be honoured during the import. Create two circles so that one contains the other. Make the hole by subtracting them Ctrl -. The result will be a path.
If you have another regular shape as circle, rectangle, text etc. Paths often contain Bezier curves. Importing them will result in an error. All arcs must be replaced by straight segments. To do that: 5. Add more vertices to approximate straight segments to arcs.
Set as many nodes as you need. Open board and import DXF. The results in attachments. If you need to create sophisticated shape of PCB suitable to the device enclosure you have to have this shape as vector project. The Inkscape is free and advanced vector tool.
I’m using it for designing 2. Accuracy of 0. Inkscape gives you full control on curve types too – this is a key functionality to me. You can easily convert these polylines to version using C command instead. On the other hand, the Eagle refuses most of curve types. Using mentioned functionality of Inkscape, you can decide about contents of the exported DXFs for Eagle. Ah, I see, but I created my horrendously complicated board outline in Eagle. It was done to the precision necessary by taking the measurements of the enclosure, etc.
When I’ll be doing a new enclosure, I’ll be looking at a full scale clay model. When I’ll be doing curves or curves to points, I can do my own postscript programming. I have used Inkscape previously, for SVG, but for the kind of art Eagle needs, it seems strange to me. This is strange? Somebody pass me my modelling clay! Honestly this is a completely new one on me, but if it works for you then great! Fallback if I can’t figure Fusion out would be something like Inkscape.
Ok, I understand. But if you are taking measurements of complex shape you will spend some time doing this. Question is why? In my opinion the simplest way is just import this shape from already done enclosure project.
This is only a couple of mouse clicks. Take a look at example. This is maybe not complex shape but I would like show you the way how I retrieve PCB’s shape from enclosure project. The example shows two 2D components of round enclosure which will be will be transferred to CAM software to make 2.
PCB shape is marked by orange color. All I need to do is just import this shape. No calliper was used. No drawing in the Eagle was needed. Just simply import. Yes, I know that if new enclosure is designed we can use clay modelling, use CADs for thousands dollars etc. But we don’t talk about professional approach.
There is no cheap software for hobbyists like me. This is the reason why to use Inkscape. We did not understand each other. Comment is superfluous. It is much easier and faster to work on component shapes under Inkscape than under Eagle.
The Eagle is not a graphic editor. BTW – regarding for pre-existing enclosures as you said. Is worth to say that Inkscape is useful in this case too. This is my private approach. Hard to say “professional” but just useful for hobbyist, fast and precise. And so, usually universal enclosures have its internal dimensions and supports for mounting screws.
Sometimes is quite difficult to make measurements of it. Remember situation s when holes in the measured enclosure don’t fit to supports in such a enclosure 0. Is there solution of it? I just took a picture of inner side of enclosure and outlined it using Inkscape. Width ot height must be measured as reference to proper scaling. Camera must be parallel to the surface.
The PCB fits perfectly! It seems we misunderstood again. The Inkscape is not used by me to create copper routes. I’m using it only for designing general shape of laminate, including diameter and location of holes in it.

How to import Inkscape SVG? Back to Topic Listing Previous Next. Message 1 of Preview file. Tags 3. Tags: incsape. Message 2 of Why Inkscape? Message 3 of Hi, If you need to create sophisticated shape of PCB suitable to the device enclosure you have to have this shape as vector project. I couldn’t find another free tool on the market which offers similar control.

If it’s a closed loop it gets imported well and you can for example extrude it or do anything else with it you would do with other sketches.
