I am trying to produce a design which can be used to make a stencil of teardrop and heart shapes of various sizes.
The basic design is created by an equation in "Graphmatica" and inserted as a .bmp in paint.net where the lines not needed are removed and the shape selected with the smallest rectangle possible.
This is then copied and pasted into a page in Inkscape, with multiple copies scaled and placed to fill the page. It saves as .svg without problems and opens when the program is restarted.
However, I need a .eps file for the machine to cut the stencil, and when I use save as and the .eps option available the file produced "failed to load" when reopened.
I have little graphics experience and less of vector graphics. Any clues appreciated.
