    Hello Mauro,

    hard to teel without seeing your network. To debug go to the beginning of your network, the import_svg node. If you render that you should see your svg. If you do not see it, the problem is there. If you do see it: is it at the right spot? Check the origin point in your viewer window so you can check if your arc overlaps with the svgs file. If it does not you can use the translate or an align node to get it at the right spot. If they do not overlap there is no intersection, right? So either debug step by step or send us your ndbx file (and the svg file if you use a different one from the example) so we can quickly see where it is wrong,

    Yes, if I reproduce the steps I can see the arc. It's a bit unclear what is going wrong, so it would indeed help if you send us the ndbx file so we can help you.

    Kind regards,
