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.

Butterfly with Raised Wings Card
« on: July 11, 2011, 06:26:28 AM »
I have already created two videos that show some of the steps and thought it may be useful for new Inkscape users to see how different tutorials can be combined to create projects. I have used a butterfly but I am sure the creative members can come up with a lot more ideas. Some suggestions are birds, bees and dragonflies.

The video and instructions to separate the butterfly into two sections can be found here http://www.inkscapecuttingdesign.com/smf/index.php?topic=527.0

Here is another card that is very similar. The card is made using the same steps as shown above except for the part about the dashed line. To create this project graduated circles are added to the bezier path. Watch the video to see how to add a set of graduated circles to the path line.

I have added the SVG file if anyone would like to have a copy. The file is not to be shared on any other website.

Are you volunteering?  :lol:

Okay, you are off the hook and I did change the scroll butterfly. The body was a bit tricky with all those cut out pieces.
