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.

I think these type of designs would look great if you use a pen or engraving tool instead of a blade in your cutter. The video is fast paced as I edited a bit to heavily and ended up deleting sections I should have left in. I hope you will be able to understand as I repeat the instructions numerous times. I will get a written tutorial made within the next few days. The written instructions should clear up any sections missing in the video.

Link to download the netting extension http://dp48069596.lolipop.jp/inkscape_script.html Download the netting.py and netting.inx files unzip and copy then paste the files in the Extension folder in Inkscape. The site is in Japanese but the file names are in English. Also if you are using Google Chrome you will have problems downloading the inx file and I suggest you change to a different browser.

I can't wait to use my new machine and test out some of these designs. I think the triangle shapes would good as Christmas trees and I hope to test them using an embossing tip. Like you said more spare time is needed.

As to finding the extensions that was just good luck. It is thanks to tikiguy asking a question. I didn't know the answer so I went searching for a solution and found some great extensions instead.

That is strange and it happened to me earlier tonight. I hit quote but ended up with edit. I changed someone's post instead of quoting. I am pleased to hear it is not just me.
