How long and wide should this be in 6x10?
Having some issues getting the size right

6x10.front is 321.85mm x 197.85mm in inkscape That probably is including some stroke width. If I set that to 0, it's 321.35 x 197.35

Have opened the files now in two different softwares, and in both they are aprox. 43x26cm. do you know why that is?

Laser stuff seems to be really inconsistent. Try opening in inkscape and let me know what you see. I suspect it's interpreting the size as pixels, and then converting.

I've only ever used a glowforge, so I don't entirely know how to force it to the right size in other cutter's software

Dumb question but what printer do you use to cut wood and make these? Also what type of wood is that you cut?

I use a glowforge laser cutter, and these designs were cut in 1/8" mdf

you can also cut solid wood, plywood, acrylic (plexiglass) and a variety of other substances

Woh, not a cheap printer like a 3d printer lol, thanks for getting back to me :)

This one is a great option for using a 3d printer:

I actually have that saved! I've made two of these. I should print a few more and screw them to the wall.

If your goal was to make me jealous that you have a laser cutter and I don't, mission accomplished. ;-)
