svg clipPath element

Note, I'm very, very far from being an svg expert


I am attempting to draw mathematically in ggb, open in Inkscape and manipulate (copy, rotate, scale) and then use Inkscape to send to VisiCut which runs a laser engraver/cutter. I have discovered in this process that every line segment in ggb shows up in the svg file with a clipPath element which seems on simple testing to be unnecessary (and breaks my toolchain mentioned above). Why the seemingly unnecessarily clunky output in svg? I have attached both what ggb generates and my cleaned version [that looks correct when opened in Firefox and Inkscape and behaves as expected in Inkscape] of 3 line segments that form a triangle.

Sorry. I forgot to actually attach. Argh! How can we talk about what's wrong with svg export if we can't attach svg files? What files types will work? I see no list. Zip seems to have worked.

Are you using GeoGebra 5 or GeoGebra 6?
