I have SVG files which i import into CorelDraw for exporting them into PLT/HPGL files.
The SVG files are polygons with extremely high node counts - up to 10000 nodes sometimes.
When i export them to PLT through Corel or Inkscape the lines are sometimes broken. The breaks are visually invisible. The drawing looks the same but when i zoom in there are places where a node or 2 are missing - tricking my laser cutter into thinking that they are not single continouos lines.
I do not want to join the lines or simplify the nodes using either of those programs.
I am building a program that exports those polygons and i want to know what is going wrong - there must be some restrictions on HPGL/PLT file format - so that i can configure my program to output a correct path that can be exported without those issues.
UPDATE: The issue seems, and i say again SEEMS to be in the IMPORT of the PLT files.
When i export a PLT file from Corel and import it again in INKSCAPE it looks OK.
However when i re-import the exported PLT's into Corel the problem is there.
Anyone else had this problem?
