I'm exporting an afdesign file as an SVG for a machinist, but the export comes out just over 4 times bigger than the original.

Any ideas?

Can you provide some screenshots, or better a .afdesign file and exported .svg that demonstrate the problem?

Here it is in afdesign Draw Persona. I have added a red line which shows it is 213.7mm across.

Here is the exported SVG. I have added the same line, but as you can see it shows as 890.5mm across.

EDIT: What's even more confusing is I've literally copied and pasted that red line from the afdesign direct into the SVG with no modification and it fits perfectly. :S

Check the DPI in the SVG export screen and document

Looks like a 300/72 mismatch somewhere


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

OK, reducing the dpi to 72 worked.

It's a bit of an odd default. I would like to see at least a 'export to original size' option in a future release. 

Thanks for all your help. A pleasure as always. :)
