Line thickness in millimeters (0.001mm)


Recommended Posts

We lack the possibility to set the line thickness (width) expressed in millimeters. Because the controllers of our machines (laser plotters) read the 0.001mm line as the cutting line. The possibility of implementing such a solution will allow us and many companies to completely switch from Illustrator to Anfinity and purchase many licenses.

In that same place, make sure "Show Lines in points" is turned off and the stroke widths will be displayed in the units selected for the document rather than in points.

Note that you can enter them in any supported unit regardless and the program will convert as needed (if that option is on, you could enter "0.001 mm" and that will be converted to points for display).

Note also that you can be more precise than what is being displayed: if only one decimal point is showing, entering "0.001mm" as the line width will still work, even though it is rounded to "0 mm" for display purposes.  You can then verify this by increasing the number of decimal places (using the option pointed out by @Pšenda) to 3 or more and you will see the full value when the object is selected.

It does here but you need to zoom in because it is very thin :D

Maybe a options could be useful, so that lines/objects always appear as 1px (something like max(1px, x)).

Is there a way for Anfinity to show such a line (0.001mm)?

I agree, this could definitely be handled better.
