comment Why is my shapefile not visible in Tilemill?
Thanks for the response! I've accepted ajashton's answer below, because it solved the immediate problem of the layers not being visible. However, doing this revealed some other problems: my layers are only halfway on the map, and the proportions are distorted. I think that your answer will solve these new problems, so I'll definitely look into what you've said. Thanks for your help!

@ alexgleith Can't believe I didn't think of exporting to PNG. What I ended up doing, though, was moving everything to within 0-180, like you initially suggested. Thanks for the help. Now I can load it into Tile mill, although nothing shows up when I do that. That's a different question, though.

comment QGIS custom CRS for map of manufacturing shop floor
My data is vector (dxf right now, although I created initially as SVG). Right now I'm trying to figure out how to convert to raster so I can follow that example. Any easy ways to do that from QGIS?

Thanks for the response. How do I set georeference it in QGIS, and how do I ensure that the coordinates are within the bounds?
