Thanks for the suggestion.

Currently the options are these, no matter how many layers are on the scene:

- uncheched all = black outlines;
- fill color checked = fill the material color but the stroke, which remains black;
- stroke paint as material color = self-explanatory, both checked alone or along with the fill color check-box: outlined stroke color like the material or fill and stroke of the same color, respectively.
- stroke paint as layer color = your suggestion, just the outline, otherwise those wire color could be mixed up with the filled color. To check on this will deactivate the others.
- stroke width = self-explanatory.

TODO (if I'm able):
- to port the tS layers as layers within the SVG. It seem to work, but I'm not sure whether the SVG layer directive is the standard one or it is valid just for Inkscape. I may explore more on this, since I've just it as SVG client...
- to assest the obj/scene units.

EDIT LATER:
Tested up to 10 layers, each one with its color and its curve-to-poly, I got 10 outlined shapes each one with its proper layer's color strokes.

Looking good.

As far as layers I think that's an Inkscape thing. I don't believe svg format has layers, it only seems to have groups.

A further option, then.

Here the new 1.1 version. Feedbacks are appreciated. Remove the previous version and extract with path under the tsx folder.

Hum, couldn't test yet : trueSpace is crashing when it start to write the file (I mean after I set a file name in the dialog box).
This occurs even if I restart tS after loading the tsx. I also tried in tS6.6. Same behavior.

I like the stroke and color options. This is a nice improvement :worship:

Try this:

maybe your system is sensitive to pure 6.6 version. Otherwise you nust have missed some DLLs such as:
- msvcrt.dll
- msvcp60.dll
- mfc42.dll

tSx SVG Export 1.3
svg_exp_1.3.png
svg_exp_1.3.png (9.11 KiB) Viewed 2723 times
FIXES:
- svg xml: added mm units to the width/height, this causes Inkscape to highlight
the exported page size within the "Document Properties" menu. Also non-metric units are accounted for;
- svg output: fit the draw as more as possible at the center of the page; its precise vertical/horizontal center alignment is left to the SVG client, being the tS bounding box dependent upon the rationale of the curves,
which enclosed manipulator elements coordinates that could not match those belongings to the SVG client. All this doesn't change the fidelity of the tS draw output.

CHANGES:
- interface;

ADDS:
- page size and orientation;
- draw units output;

KNOWN LIMITATIONS:
- radio buttons "Draw units" doesn't holds the settings on disc. default draw units = cm (A0 fit).

INSTALLATION:
1) Extract the zip folder within the "..\tsx\" directory.
2) Search for "tSxSVGExport.tsx" through the usual "Install new trueSpace eXtension" icon. tS 6.6 version included.

Note: this version fixes also some upper/lower case in the names of the files. Please, remove the previous version if any before to install this. For the tS icon it is unimportant to be removed fro the interface, because it is case insensitive.
