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.

Jedi Costume
« on: October 31, 2015, 08:00:27 PM »
OK,  so I didn't actually cut anything for this costume with my eClips, but I did use Inkscape to draw the pattern for the outer tunic and obi.  I also used it to figure out my pattern placement on the fabric.   :)  I couldn't find how to tile print directly from Inkscape, so I used another program to print the pattern out at actual size and then taped the pages together.  After that it was all scissors and rotary cutter.   :-)HeatherM Jedi 2015.jpg

Wow, nice work!

Yeah, Inkscape's abilities as far as printing are not great.  But I've heard if you use "Print to PDF", then you can open it in Adobe and print from there.

There is a brand new extension that might have helped with getting this to the actual size.  Although I don't know if you ever needed it to be the actual size in Inkscape.  It sounds like you wanted to use a printer to get it to the right size.  But just in case, it's here:  https://github.com/Moini/inkscape-realscale-extension/

Thanks Brynn and Laurianne!  I did design the file at actual size, I thought that it would be easier than to try keeping size conversions consistent.  I just changed the document size to fit the pattern pieces.  The fun and easy part of working digitally rather than on paper.  :-)  I did read about the print to PDF option, but since I already had the other program I just went with that one.
