    Hello Dmitri,
    Unfortunately not all PDF files can be opened. There are different versions of PDF formats and not all can be opened.

    That is not a bug but a limitation of the current implementation of PDF parser.

    Hi again,

    It was not easy but finally I did found a package (pikePdf) that managed to parse the FlateDecode streams in a PDF file correctly. The zlib implementation in Python do not expose the FlateDecoder but search for a specific header which PDF files do not always have in the PDF streams. But with the help of pikePdf module I managed to import your file in FlatCAM.
