Help Using Inkscape / Re: getting Inkscape to work with Trotec MiniManager (Rayjet)
« Last post by Kirstie on February 04, 2019, 07:20:07 AM »
Hai Dinosaur,
Do you know this specific forum:
http://www.laserengraverforum.com. Maybe there is someone there who knows the answer.

I wish I had a Trotec to try, but I don't  :(.

I'm sure you're guide will be helpful.  Let me know when it's ready, and I'll list it on this page where I keep all the best manuals and tutorials:  http://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php

Welcome to the forum!

Can you explain what you mean by "millable font"?  Do you want to cut the letters completely out of whatever material you're using?  Or etch the letters into the material?  Or something else?

Hi Brynn,

Thank you for explaining about the 3 forums.
This course that I am writing is really a complete beginner's guide in Dutch. But I couldn't resist adding some information about plotting and lasercutting.
And no, I don't have a cutting device, but maybe that is gonna change. I do have an old-school scalpel :D.

In fablabs people often assume that Inkscape is easy to understand, but it is not for real beginners.
That is why I will explain some things for beginners about fablabs, and where to look for information.

Hello,

i really need your help: For a project, i need a font, which is "millable". Therefore i used fontforge to create a new font. I installed it with windows 10 but i got a strange behaviour. Please have a look at the screenshot. Does anybody have a "millable" font?

Regards
Alex

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, this one will become read only, so that all the wonderful tutorials will still be available.  But there are still currently 2 other Inkscape forums, which can help with any kind of cutting issue.

The community's goal is to have just one forum, which is almost ready to be opened.  The other 2 will eventually close (or divert traffic to the new one), and then we will finally have one official Inkscape forum.

Since you posted in this cutting design forum, does that mean your course is about using Inkscape for digital cutting, or some particular cutter brand?

Hello fellow Inkscapers. My name is Kirstie and I am writing a course about Inkscape in Dutch.
That is how I ended up on this forum.

I have used Inkscape for several years now, mostly for drawings and illustrations.
Did I read correctlythat it will become a read-only forum?
Well that is a pity, but it is still very interesting.

Help Using Inkscape / Re: Plotter / Vinyl cutter addon
« Last post by brynn on January 30, 2019, 04:30:30 PM »
Welcome to the forum!

I guess it depends on what kind of file format your machine will accept.  Inkscape can natively save as some of the commonly used formats, such as SVG, EPS, DXF, HPGL, PLT and maybe some others, without needing an extension.  But there's also Extensions menu > Export > Plot, and I think I heard of someone using Export > Win32 Vector Print, for some kind of cutting once (don't remember if it was vinyl/plotter).  Plus, there are hundreds of external extensions (need to be installed) and you can browse through those here:  https://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php (on the botton part of the page).  Probably under the Export category would be the ones you need, but there's also a Misc Laser Tools category,
