comment Adobe Illustrator pixel to mm formula?
thats right skaught! if an svg files says in its text that a square for example is 100*100 pixels then thats what it was drawn by the user on his computer. irrespectively of anything. he specified something to be 100*100 pixels and thats it. that square will always be imported in illustrator with the correct number. if i take that square and just change its units to mm then the scaling was done and its now 100*100 mm. i dont need to know any formulas or anything. thank you friends. if you think i still got it wrong just comment me back

An SVG is a text file right? It says 100 pixels line. I want to take that thing as it is on the text of the svg and convert it to the same number in millimiters. nothing more. i think vectors dont use a DPI what do you think about that. will the conversion be the same or am i still gonna run into a problem? basically i want to take all measurements that are within an SVG text file in pixels and make them millimiters within illustrator. Then export the sizes in DXF format for laser cutting.

Yes but if i create something in illustrator in pixels then it is 1point=1pixel=1/72 of an inch. I am not talking about importing raster images i talked about importing an SVG which is a vector in pixels.

However illustrator does measure it right? What you are saying is that illustrator actually gives a size to a pixel created within it. 1 pixel = 1/72 of an inch so its actually hardwired within illustrator. If i create a VECTOR that is 72 pixels in illustrator this will give me a size of 1 inch. As you say then what i understand is that this will ALWAYS be the case in Illustrator since it is hardwired in it.
