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.

Video - Nested Shapes Using Tiled Clones
« on: August 05, 2010, 08:01:14 AM »
Here is another way to create nested shapes.
Sometimes interpolate can distort the shapes, this method tends to be more accurate as each shape is a clone of the original.
Okay, big amendment. I had a light bulb moment and will remake this video. In the meantime I have added the changes below.
First image shows how to have the largest shape on the bottom and the smallest shape on the top.
The second image shows how you can add a colour graduation to the nested shapes.
The third image is an example showing largest to smallest for order and a colour graduation. Easy nested shapes in a few minutes.

WOW Carolyn.  Keep it up.  There won't be anything we don't know at this rate.  :lol:   Many thanks.

It was interesting to see that this is the best way I have tried so far at producing nested shapes with an integral pattern.  So often the pattern can be distorted on multiple replications.  The screenshot shows what I came up with but it does open the door to patterns much more exciting.  I think I shall try a lattice next.

Well it worked a treat.  No distortion whatsoever. :D  I will put the file in free svg files if anyone wants it.

Great to hear it worked. I have learnt from past video tutorials it doesn't always work for everyone, so this is good news.

Ooo Thats a lovely design TechnoMum, I have to admit that I'm a little behind on the designing at the moment; and I had to ask Guru Carolyn for some help so that I could finish the card I was ask to make.
