The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Hi Brynn,
Reading your posts on this forum, well I have to thank you for all your work, both here and on other internet pages where I saw your name.
                  :ur:
I don't have a cutter or plotting machine, so I don't know if the answers here are still up-to-date.

Here I am still workinging on a Dutch course, as I mentioned somewhere on inkscapecuttingdesign.
This is what I found: there are many fablabs who have specific instructions available on their own wiki pages, for users working with their machines.
But besides that, there is not much information about Inkscape and plotting, online nor in books.

----

Would you like to have me send you a digital copy of my course, when it is finished?
It will not be open source and free, but it will open up Inkscape to a bigger group of people who do not understand all the English tutorials.
There are a lot of pictures and some videos, all in Dutch.
But hey, google translate has become very good, so you will be able to understand it.

I just need to do a little research.  But if it will work, it will be much less of a bother than keeping the software updated.

They should still be useful, unless they have removed things from newer versions?  I think read-only would be great, unless it's too much of a bother.

Thanks for your comments, Heather  :)

Do you think the tutorials here are still relevant?  Most of them are written with versions of Inkscape that are fairly old by now.  And I would assume the cutter softwares have probably advanced as well.

I'm happy to keep this forum online and searchable, if it's wanted.  But keeping the software up to date is a bit of a pain, considering there hasn't really been much activity.  But I'm pretty sure I could put it in read-only mode.  Then I wouldn't have to keep the software up to date.

I think the tutorials are an excellent resource since they are geared towards creating cutting files rather than images and I would hate to have them disappear.  I know that when I was first learning Inkscape so many of the YouTube tutorials weren't completely appropriate for cutting.

Update

Well, it's taken longer than I thought, but we finally have an opening "date" (more like "month") for the new forum, which is August 2019.  Once it opens, I've decided to just block new registrations in this forum.  That will force Inkscape support to the new forum (because I'll be doing the same thing in my other Inkscape forum).

Existing members will still be able to use this forum, so they have access to their contents, if they need it.  I'm not sure how long I'll leave it open.  Does anyone have any thoughts or needs or comments about keeping the forum open?

Since there haven't been any comments from the original message, I guess no one really is interested anymore.  If there aren't any comments over the next....maybe 6 months, I'm considering just closing this forum entirely.

If anyone would prefer keeping it, but in read-only mode, I'd be happy to do that.  Just speak up and let me know  :)

Also please feel free to post any comments or questions about the new forum here.  I'll post a link to it, when the opening gets closer.

Help Using Inkscape / Re: getting Inkscape to work with Trotec MiniManager (Rayjet)

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  :(.

Discuss Ongoing Projects (Work in Progress) / Re: Font for CNC

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.
