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.

cutting out in colour
« on: April 21, 2011, 12:37:34 PM »
Is it possible to cut out shapes with colour and if so how :?: , I have a Cricut Personel and using fairy cut, I also have inkscape. I find this forum very informative and have learned quite a few things.
When I manage to cut out something in fairy cut after converting files and what have you I feel very pleased with myself then I have a senior moment and think, how did I do that now. :?

Hi, I am unable to answer this questions as I do not own a Cricut. Hopefully one of the Cricut ladies will be along soon and can answer this question for you.

I think most Cricut users who visit this forum use SCAL (I could be wrong). Just in case there are no owners of Fairy Cut I will give you a few links that may be useful.
Fairy Cut is a Cricut version of Funtime software and I think a few features differ but it is basically the same software. I know of two sites with videos showing how to use Funtime software and I have added the links below.
Funtime videos http://www.funtimescrapbooking.com/Videos/Videos.aspx
Melinda has some easy to follow videos http://www.youtube.com/user/lovemyzombie
Melinda also runs a group on Yahoo for Funtime users and may be able to help if nobody answers this post. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/funtimesoftware/

I'm not sure exactly what your question is.  But if you are cutting on a Cricut you just lay out the colored paper on the mat to line up with the images in your software.  Since I don't know FairyCut but I'll search around for a video and see how it is done.  I'll get back here soon.

Me again, unfortunately all of the video's from Fairy Cut have no audio and I didn't find much anyway.  I did go to the Fairy Cut forum and I think you would be well served to go there.  It appears that a "guru" is answering questions pretty quickly.

I cannot download the software to try it since I have a MAC and it doesn't work on a Mac.

Perhaps someone else will come by with more/better information for you.  I'll keep watching.
