KiCad flattening fillets(or arcs) after importing a DXF file all of a sudden


#1

Hello again,

Suddenly after working on a PCB a little with kicad I wanted to finalise a design by importing an edge cuts layer(I use a method that includes alternating between two dxf files that uses one to clean electrical relief for copper pour and then remove it and import another one just for the edge cuts) I realised the layer I tried to import got distorted by having the arcs(fillets) turned into line as the example shows:

How it looked before the kicad prolem:

How it looks now:

checked the DXF files again with an external software and it seemed fine so I’m sure I somehow messed with the kicad settings…

Quite sure it’s an easy fix just not familiar with this one…

Help would be appreciated thank you kicad wizards.

Thank you just I just ended up uninstalling and reinstalling the software on the way updating it.

Apparently the great great developers of kicad added a feature I realy needed and issued in a topic I started that sure is gonna save me alot of time.

BTW very unrelated how much money do the developers need to make this development a full time job?
