The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) 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. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

Inset with Robo Master
« on: September 28, 2010, 04:53:39 PM »
When I do a "print and cut" using Robo Master, I sometimes don't get the cut precisely where I want it and end up with a little bit of white in places around the print.  Does anyone know of a way to inset the cutline just a tiny bit?

Hi Laurianne,

If you are using RM v.5.1 there is an Offset Shapes button on the top Tool Bar. (a green square with little red arrows). If you click that you will see a new screen where you can enter your required measurements.  See photos. [photos missing]  If you are using an earlier version please let me know.  I also have v 2.4 and it can be done but not by the automatic method.

Thanks so much, Techie.  I'll have to see which version I'm using and then give it a try.

Laurianne, it may be that the Offset button is also on an earlier version (ie the 4 series) but I don't have that to check on.  To see which version you are using click on Help and choose about.

I was indeed using an older version of RM. I downloaded the new one and it works like a charm.  I am so happy as this was a frustration I always had with Robo Master.  Thank you, Techie!
