I got our AxiDraw this week. It was pretty easy to get moving. We draw everything in Illustrator. I imported my design (which is all path objects, not text) and separated it out into layers to number them and then I go into hatch and I get this error:
I did some digging and did select all in all layers - path object to path. No go. I tried selecting each individual object and did path - union. This originally fixed the object in the layer I was working on, but I think it may have been luck.
When I attempt to draw with it, it does some objects fine and then others it draws in the shape, out of the shape, leaving gaps and coloring outside of the intended area. I am lost, I do not use Inkscape regularly (and at this point, after attempting to get this working for a solid 6 hours, I think I hate it). My shapes are all paths that I generated and they are all closed. I have used this original file on other CNC machines and it has no issue so I am unsure why Inkscape and the Axidraw do.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
