From SVG to GSD

There has always been a problem with opening a DXF file from Inkscape into the Robomaster software, and the new Silhouette Studio is still quite unstable in opening a DXF file; until the Silhouette Team come up with a more stable solution here is how I convert an SVG file into a smooth cutting GSD file.

Here is the finished cut, Oooop I forgot that I removed the middle of the design that you can download from the link Digital Cuttings above.


  1. Thank you so much for such a nice visual tutorial. It takes time and patience to make these and they help out so many. This is so thoughtful and kind of you.

  2. Very nice tutorial! I have never tried the silhouette software to convert my SVG files, I usually use the old Robomaster software. I may have to give this way a try to see which way is easier.
