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.

Inkscape Community tutorials
« on: June 21, 2014, 01:44:45 AM »
I have a large collection of links, to all the best Inkscape tutorials that I know about, on this page http://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php

Probably none of them are specifically cutting related.  All just about using Inkscape.  I'm sort of a new member here, and looking forward to perusing all the tutorials you have here.  Maybe I will want to add some of yours to my lists?

Hi, the link isn't working, I only get the error message - 404 not found.

Most Inkscape tutorials, especially the basics are just fine for people learning Inkscape to create cutting files. There is always something to learn from any tutorial. The main thing when creating cutting files is to have no lines cross each other because the blade will cut any line.

Once a person masters the basics and they learn to look for crossing lines, most tutorials will be of some benefit. Plus more people are venturing into Print and Cut so even the full colour artistic tutorials are of benefit.

Print2Cut is a method of printing your design, sometimes a stamped image and cutting around it with a shadow outline with a digital cutter.  Lots of tutorials on this depending on your cutter software.

Here's one tut from HeatherM

Oh, I see.  Instead of cutting out detailed shapes, your artwork is just printed, and then you cut a fancy border around it.  I don't actually have a cutting machine.  I was just curious.

Thanks  :)
