Converting an SVG file to a DXF file with Inkscape

While all of our sets come with both SVG and DXF files, you may have some SVG files that you need to convert to a DXF file, especially if you use the free Silhouette Studio software that only accepts DXF files.

You can easily convert an SVG to a DXF for free with Inkscape.  Inkscape is free, and often used instead of Adobe Illustrator to edit vector files.  Visit www.inkscape.org to download it for free. 

Ok - so you have your SVG file and you have Inkscape. Next, open Inkscape, and go to FILE > IMPORT.
