Eggbot Twist
« on: May 12, 2012, 05:59:23 AM »
I think this may be a project best used with a pen or engraving tool instead of the blade. If you make the design large enough it could be cut if the stroke width is increased. I am sure you creative people will show us how this can be used.

To create these design you need to download and install the extension. Download Page http://code.google.com/p/eggbotcode/dow ... l:Featured
Documentation to help with installation if needed http://wiki.evilmadscience.com/Installing_software
The last link is to Twist extension by the Evil Mad Scientist http://wiki.evilmadscience.com/Twist

Once installed you can start to play.
To find the extension go to Extensions> Eggbot Contributed> Twist

You cannot use live preview like other path effects. You only have one chance at the settings. If you don't like the design close the extension and apply undo. To save time navigating to the extension go Extensions> Previous Extension Settings to re-open the twist pop up window.

Carolyn, do the sides not only have to be straight but all the same length or is it possible to make figures with multiple straight edges of different lengths?  Is that a silly question - lol ?

Wow, you have been busy. I had a funny feeling you would show us all what could be done. I only seem to have success with squares.

I love the coloured designs. The orange one is like one of those optical illusions.

LOL I just read the text on your first image. What instructions?  I am still learning and don't have much information to share. I only learnt a few things not to do. Don't forget to share your tricks when you master these designs.

I think any shape with straight lines will work. I just know circles and ovals don't. Stupid me used a circle first and thought it didn't work. The minute I changed to a square it worked.

When you create a design and ungroup the pieces look like objects after interpolate. The only thing I see different to interpolate is the rotation. I did try a roughly drawn kite type shape and it worked.

I normally wouldn't have posted until I did a lot of testing but I had a funny feeling Angela would have fun with this one. Looks like I was right.

Hi Carolyn, thats what I thought about the straight lines and thats why I tried the star shape, and you can see that I did have limited sucess; it was the Step Ratio that was causing me problems because of course I went over the 1.00000. Then when I thought I had got the Step Ratio just right then I messed up on the number of twists, but I will get there eventually I just wish there was a Live view button.....

Only equilateral triangles. LOL I know there are three types but equilateral is the only one I remember.

I just Googled and here is an easy explanation. http://www.mathsisfun.com/triangle.html

Your new designs look fantastic. I can see a day spent playing with Inkscape.

LOL great to see you are having so much fun. I knew I could rely on you to be creative. I never thought of joining shapes or altering the fill after creating the designs.

Here is one for you? Have you tried gradients? I did and was unsuccessful.

I LOVE playing with these.

How about your own personal "stamp" or a logo.

Multi-layers with the twist on the top.  Thanks to Carolyn's "hint" that you can use "stroke" to enlarge things instead of outset I was able to make the lines of the twist bigger.
Layers (bottom up_
Frame
Base layer color
Rectangles in various colors, no stroke
Initials
Twist

I'd just print this as I think it would take a very long time to use a pen to draw the lines, but I'm not patient.  

Thanks Angels and Carolyn for the inspiration.

Very creative. The changes you made give the finished design impact. It looks 3D.

Thank ladies,  I have to put all I learn from the video's into a context so I remember how.  Then I think of other things I learned in the videos and incorporate them.  I'm happy with this one, I've even played with it more and gave the initials a little ooomph with bevels.

Love it,

thanks.

Angela, how are you getting the striped effect?

I did manage it once, before I wrote the tutorial but mine looked different to yours. Mine changed fill colour half way through the design. Your wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

Like your orange and white striped design.
Not to worry it just registered in my brain - exclusion. Something I rarely use in Inkscape.
At long last I can have pretty colours like you do.

See thats where I get in a lot of trouble because I use exclusion as often as possible, and sometimes I think it causes more problems because I try and do things its not suppose to do!! Then its Fatal Error time!!

Ooo love your example Carolyn, now why didn't I change the stroke line colour??? I swear if I actually engaged my brain I would truly be dangerous!!
