My challenge today was to get to grips with the program which appears to be the best choice for cutting my own designs using my CraftRobo. It’s a free, open source Scalable Vector Graphics progam called Inkscape and as is the case with many of these niche-interest machines, there’s a really helpful forum where generous souls share their experience and knowledge. A good job too, because I need plenty of that!
I began by drawing a paper doll template in the Inkscape program. I followed all kinds of tutorials and help files and finally made it to the cutting bit.
I sat and watched as my small paper doll template was niftily cut from the corner of my card. Well, I wanted it small, but…
Did I really want it this small?
Perhaps I did!
It’s not right yet, there were one or two places where it didn’t cut and I needed to separate a couple of bits with my scissors. I’m hopeful that one or two expert Inkscape and CraftRobo users will be able to explain where I went wrong. But hey, for now, I’m thrilled!!
