  1. Create EPS
    $ tex Cartesian_coordinates_3D.tex && dvips -E Cartesian_coordinates_3D.dvi
  2. Outline fonts
    $ eps2eps -dNOCACHE Cartesian_coordinates_3D2.eps
  3. Fix bounding box
    $ ps2epsi Cartesian_coordinates_3D2.eps Cartesian_coordinates_3D.eps
  4. Convert to Sketch
    $ pstoedit -f sk Cartesian_coordinates_3D.eps
  5. Convert to SVG
    $ skconvert Cartesian_coordinates_3D.svg
  6. Fix Cartesian_coordinates_3D.svg with Inkscape
