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.

How do I..........
« on: September 03, 2011, 10:49:30 AM »
I have a template for an Advent calendar which has a lot of little bits to cut out and I was wondering if there was a quicker way of doing it with the Robo but using either Inkscape of Studio software.  I have had a go with the Studio software and have not achieved a great deal so I am now asking the experts if you could please help me.

The template is a pdf file so I have saved one of the sheets as a png and I am attaching it so that you can see what I am on about.  Obviously the straight lines are cut lines and the dotted lines are score lines but so far I have only been able to show everything as cut lines which is not what I want.  I need to have cut lines and score lines.  Perhaps it is not possible and I need to do it by hand.

Any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated as I have spent some time on it already and not got very far.

Thank you.
