  1. Hey nice video. I'm recently trying to take over the plasma drawing for my fab shop as we lost the guy who was handling it. The drawing program is clunky, i've used illustrator and this seems more user friendly for the vector drawings. Only problem is the existing clunky drawing software is nice because it can make drawings using arcs and lines which our plasma table does better with. Splines and polylines give it trouble. what is your cutting software? I'm wondering if there is a workaround with the software we have or we need new cam software or if its an issue with the table. I don't know if this question even makes sense. I'm new to this.

  2. I use inkscape and sheetcam for plasma. All I can say is our drawing styles are very different in the way we prepare files for cutting. Don't think either one better, but just like myself you apply certain tactics to speed up production of drawings.

  3. Have you ever tried to open a dfx in the fusion 360 . I am having issues with converting to dfx from Inkscape and opening it in fusion 360 or in torchmate table. Lines are not connected two many lines etc. or am I not converting correctly in the Inkscape. Thanks Dale.

  4. Hey mate. Love your videos and the work youre doing. I don't use sheetcam but I do use Inkscape in a similar way, however I do all my tweaking/drawing in Skechup, then export as dxf/dwg from there. Like you, it's just a way that I have found which works for me. Sketchup is very simple to use. All the best!

  5. You have come a long way my friend.. thumbs up to you!

    I am about to the tear down and paint mode on my 6×12 build. I need to finish up some fab work and do precise measurements for the gantry's .

  6. Check out video tutorials from Nick Saporito for Inkscape. He has some awesome ones on how to combine all of the pieces into one path. Thank you for your videos too! I have a 4×8 table and use Inkscape and Sheetcam too. I was wondering how come you save as a .dxf for Sheetcam instead of just bringing it in as a .svg?
