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.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

Thanks Susan, I was wondering what I could learn today and this is my choice.  I'll be back if I have questions.  Your tutorial looks easy enough that even I should be able to do it!

Your boxes and robot look great.
 
I actually saw this extension last year ( http://www.inkscapeforum.com/viewtopic. ... ker#p43317 ) and thought it was only suitable for laser projects. Thanks for thinking outside the box and showing it can be used for projects on our cutters. I have a mountain of fun foam but can never find a use for it. I think I will have to do the same as you and make a few boxes.

Did you use the path effect - gears to create the gears on the Robot?

I have it installed but is giving me an error and no box, so will have a go at it again.

Nice blue robot Susan!
