Those look really nice, MNCrafter. How long does it take for a single one of those? They look rather intricate.

CNC or Gcode / Re: Error while making gcode for cnc plotter
« Last post by brynn on April 27, 2018, 12:52:52 PM »
Welcome to the forum!

And sorry it took so long to get your message approved.  My DSL connection died, and I had to wait for the guy to come out and climb the pole.....

Unfortunately, your problem is beyond the abilities of the people who are (still) active in this forum, to handle.  I would suggest posting either in Inkscape Community forum or InkscapeForum.com.

I can tell you that it's probably nothing you're doing wrong.  What little I do understand about the traceback errors, indicates a problem with one (or both) of those extensions.  And it's the traceback error messages which I don't understand (and I'm guessing the other member who visits often, probably doesn't either).

I've never heard of that extension before.  The best advice I could give would be to look for an upgrade to that extension. 

(I do know that in the past when I've seen traceback errors with "unittouu" the advice has either been to get an upgrade for the extension, or downgrade Inkscape to an earlier version.  But again, that's just an anecdotal observation on my part, and it's not coming from any technical knowledge.  The other forums will be your best bet.)

(fyi - this forum may soon be converted to read only, and traffic redirected to one of those other forums)

Forum Issues, News, Announcements / server upgrade

Hi Friends,
We'll be upgrading our server, hopefully between 10 pm, Sat., April 28th and 2am, Sun., April 29th.  The forum will be down for a relatively short time.  I'll get an idea if it will be a few minutes or a few hours, soon, and I'll update this message.

I apologize for the inconvenience, but it will give us faster and more secure service.  Thanks for everyone's patience.

Welcome to the forum!

For the exact angles, it depends on the angle, as to the best way to create it.  So you'll need give us a specific examplle....or else dive into some tutorials, and start learning Inkscape.  For a complete novice, I would suggest Help menu > Tutorials > Basic, Shapes, and Advanced (don't worry, the one titled "Advanced" is really written for newbies, but for some reason was give an unfortunate name).  After that, you can find tutorial listings by skill level, here:  https://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php.  There are some more tutorials in the Quick Start chapter of the manual, which can be found in the Help menu > Inkscape Manual (requires internet connection).  And of course you tube contains countless tutorials.

For the exact size, you should draw the image or object at whatever size is comfortable for your screen size.  Then when it's finished, scale it to the correct size.  Object menu > Transform > Scale

Or in some cases, it might be better to draw it the proper size from the start.  But that's really just a personal preference.  For example, if you  want to use a grid, it would probably be easier to draw it the correct size from the start, by snapping nodes to the grid.  http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Snapping.html

If you have instructions for the decals which tells you to draw a line with this angle and this length, it sounds like they might be expecting you to use a CAD program.  Inkscape is not a CAD program, and doesn't work the same way.  If that's the case, you might try LibreCAD.  I'm pretty sure it's free.

Hi, I'm brand new to Inkscape and would like to use it to create decals and stencils for my radio control cars using my new Cricut One. The shape I'm making first is a curved windscreen banner that needs exact angles and sizes. Can this easily be explained here, or is there a tutorial out there?

Brian. :b1:

Oh, I didn't realize Inkscape had other DXF export extensions.  So I've searched through extensions, and here's nice list you can look at!

I don't know which ones work, or work with which operating system, or which cutter hard or software, or which ones might be broken.  This is just a raw list which you can research.

The last 2 might be different versions of the same thing - I'm not sure.
