Exporting SVG Files

The SVG file format is most commonly used by art and design software. It is an XML-Based vector image format for 2D images. SVG allows for art/designs to scale without loss of fidelity. As opposed to DXF, SVG is an open format which can readily be transferred between multiple programs and most web browsers. This guide is for using your vector graphics program to export an SVG into the WAM software.
