Tinkercad will import SVG but only shapes, if you have lines with stroke weight you need to expand the stroke before export. Also you will need to import each layer separately so you can rebuild the vector in 3D

I was playing with Tinkercad.. and I tried SVG... did not work.. what it imported was the cutouts.  I know it can import DXF.. but FPD does not export DXF?

I believe it exports both DWG and DXF, but I could be mistaken. I would run it to see, but I'm visiting relatives and don't have anything but a tablet with me.

LOL.. sorry other way around it will export DXF, but tinkercad will not import.. Sigh..  I will need to look at other software I guess Tinkercad is too limited.

I work around this by importing shape into Adobe Illustrator then exporting .svg to TinkerCAD but as said above - only shapes/strokes not 3d objects, but it's easy to give them depth in TinkerCAD if they are suppose to be flat like ie panels for enclosure.

my actual status with 1088XEL is:
- CF3 works only with one CF card I have (PQI 256MB) none of my 16GB, 4GB, 2GB Sandisk Ultra works. None of my Kingston 512MB 1GB works. A bit frustrating but I have ordered a few PQI 512MB cards so will dig in it more. Checked with four IDE2CF units. directly or on lead. It's not they are not visible in BIOS as unit, two of them showed in loader but choosing anything hangs after boot. But one setup works so keep thinking it's card depending situation.

- my SIO2SD is not working with 1088XEL. It's not Lotharek made one, will test my board with Lotharek SIO2SD to definately judge where is problem. my all external SIO drives 1050, CA2001 and XF551 clone works.

- SIDE2 works as inserted cart, but none cart from my collection works (and this is strange one). I have like 30 carts, from XL series until last XE like KARATEKA, BLUE MAX etc.

- XC12 tape recorded works

all latest firmware etc. I went thru several setups in BIOS, comparing side to side with my A800 Incognito and honestly got lost. All seems to work (I cannot say it's not working at all) but in details - I cannot say all works.

Do you have '8K Cart ROM' enabled in the BIOS?

yes, of course. But I have figured out the problem with carts finally - the cart slot is a bit loose I think. SIDE2 works flawlessy, but I have to move a little cart with RiverRaid before powering up 1088XEL to make it working.

And I did screen snapshot of whole profile I have now to make possible to go back if anything  :)

Heh... there is no 'of course' in these matters. :)

Blue Max is not working

So: the fact '8K Cart ROMs' is enabled implies the PBI BIOS is turned on (unless the setting is simply greyed out). Have you tried turning the PBI BIOS off just in case the cart doesn't like it for some reason (I have no idea why; PBI BIOS doesn't touch the CCTL area on this platform, but perhaps the game objects to PBI handlers somehow).

this is pretty strange - I works now. At the beginning I turned on and off both Sparta and PBI, resaved profile and it works. I have screenshots of whole profile done two hours ago and it's the same. So PBI was turned off and now is also tuned off. So this is my "almost pure stock" profile to go back :) Thanks for your questions, forced me to to recheck, maybe I messed with profiles, not saved something and after reboot

I sometimes wish the there was a way to name the 4 saved profiles and have them on the startup screen selectable before boot.

With another 32 bytes of NVRAM and more code space, this would be doable. Other option is removing fourth profile and squeezing in 3x 8 character names. A bit lame and I'd probably have to strip out other functionality to make room for keyboard tables and input routine.

 

Could store names in ROM, alternatively, but this seems inconvenient and kludgy.

for me it's fine as it is. I donot know where the problem was, maybe I was to dizzy with whole thing as - CF cards were not working properly, SIO2PC was working, SIO2SD not working, floppy drives working, then carts not working. It was pretty strange for someone already using Ultimate 1MB and SIDE2 and Incognito - all with FJC firmware so looking very similiar. Never had such problems with simple startup or the startup was more complicated then my knowledge and experience with whole thing. Both more then possible :) THanks again.

BTW adding 2nd Pokey is my next step - apart fitting IC into socket anything elso to do, or I missed something?
