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.

ready to go ??
« on: August 26, 2010, 06:43:59 AM »
HI all,
another newbie with a cricut create, sure cuts a lot and a craft robo at the ready !
I've downloaded inkscape and am looking for the elusive starting point.
I would like to be able to import line drawings into inkscape and turn into cut files - maybe a simple flower to start. ?
I can manage welded words in scal but want to be able to add welded words / text to pictures to have cut as one project.
I would like to concentrate on the create as it is my newest toy .
Many thanks in anticipation
sharen

Hi Sharen, Welcome!
Heather M's website (with tutorials)  http://imagesbyheatherm.wordpress.com/

Carolyn has many wonderful video tutorials on her blog.  I don't remember if she covers tracing, but she has some great videos on many of the things that you can do in Ink.   http://www.cuttwopieces.com/

Welcome Sharen,

Heather's tutorials are always nice and easy to follow. I have not covered tracing as many talented people have posted instructions already.

Kay at cleversomeday has listed a lot of sites with Inkscape tracing tutorials and you may find some of them handy in the future as you are learning Inkscape. http://cleversomeday.wordpress.com/images-to-svg/

Kay at cleversomeday has a really cool way of using the paint bucket for tracing

I like Heathers tracing tutorial she makes it easier to understand the threshold thing

thank you all, have made a start - have a picture of a cat, managed to get the trace bitmap, then got the boxes to appear - now it looks like kitty swallowed a firework - bits of cat all over the screen !! I shall give it another go I think.
Many thanks for the welcomes as well - very much appreciated as dont feel alone with this scary programme and cutter that is smarter than me !
cheer all
