Summary 0003420: SVG imports from inkscape lead to wrong dimensions
Revision 2019-06-17 14:59 by Kunda1
Description With the change from 0.91 to 0.92 inkscape devs changed the conversion factor of userunit (uu) and mm. Pre-0.92 it was 1uu=1 inch/90 and starting from 0.92 it is 1 uu=1inch/96. This was necessary to meet the actual recommendations/rules of svg-standard and css. See this article in inkscapewiki for further reading.

When a user creates a file in inkscape with absolute dimensions (mm) and saves it, then imports it into FC, bodies in Freecad come out with too large dimensions. For example - a 100mm square will be 106,66mm in FC now (100 x 96/90).

In this discussion in the German forum folks who can read German can follow the process of isotating the bug.
