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.

Video - Another way to create nested shapes.

In this video I did use tiled clones again but this time they are in colour and in the correct order as they are created.

Ooooo Carolyn

Another outstanding video and I like that option at the end that shows the circle changing into an oval, this feature opens up a new design aspect that I intend to fully explore when I go back to my normal working hours next week.(I can't wait to play)

I did this tut first thing this morning and was very pleased with the outcome.  I used a oak leaf and got many colors and many sizes.  I'm thinking about how to use them in the "challenge".

thanks for another outstanding tutorial.

Thanks for the wonderful video Carolyn! I've a question - if I were to take the original shape and in SCAL change it's width/height with the "Keep proportions" option on (or do something similar with another software) then would it be the same as creating these nested shapes?

Hi, yes you can achieve the same result by using one shape, duplicating and resizing it.

I often do it that way when I want specific sizes such as 1/4 inch graduated sizes. When I want a specific size I duplicate, keep proportions the same and enter the new size and repeat until I have the required number of shapes.

I thought you'd like to see what I did with the tiled clones.

I took a heart and rotated it 90 d three times. I now have 4 hearts in a flower shape.  Union.  then the tutorial on tiled clones.  10 rows, just as in the video.  I played with H,S,L until I got this effect.  After deleting the foundation black heart.  I manually rotated each layer one way and the other.  and this is what I got.  I did try to rotate them with rotate but it didn't work so well, probably because I don't do math and couldn't figure out what the angle should be, I think I got something that looks like individual little flowers....but what ever I love it.

It could be cut in tones of red and assembled into a 3d flower but I think I'll just print it.

Thanks Carolyn, your tuts are always spot on and spark what little creativity I have and thought you'd like to know that someone really does do something and learns something from all your tuts.  If you look closely at the very center piece you can see what I started with.






Hugs,

Susan that looks great. I never thought of flowers and it could be used to make so many different ones.
The learning goes both ways. I am okay on the technical side but dreadful at the creative stuff. My daughter laughs as I still hand draw cats like I was taught at kindy, a figure 8 with two triangles for ears and a scribble line for the tail. It is one of the reasons Inkscape is so good for those of us without artistic talent, we can just play with shapes.
