Re: designing a font

Thank you for the clarification! Got checked by others in a newer version of the cad softver too and it seems working as it is supposed. Also looked at the character set. By default only latin-1 is available? Opening arial it takes ages to scroll through all of them so guessing one can add in new on...

Re: designing a font

Ok, corrected the character and extended the character set.
53,858267716535433070866141732283 pt hight text displays fine in inkscape, right on scale.
The cad program now zooms perfectly but is still off scale. Trying to connect with the developers.

Attaching the test font and a test svg.

Re: designing a font

Checked again, the cad software measures the text in the document's measure units. Then again, checked the ISO3098 specs too. It says the minimal text line distance should be 18 times the stroke width. Weird. 3098-5 says the character box is 19 times the stroke width size (for the non-narrow version...

Re: Deleting Inner Nodes From Path

Hi. With breaking apart (Ctrl+Shift+K) you can separate the "subpaths" to be separate objects. Then deselect the outer outline(s) and delete the rest (del). In letters like "O" you need to keep the inner edge as well and after the breaking apart you will see the whole area displa...

Re: Trying to copy a parabolic curve from a PDF

Hi.

To plot a parabola I'd rather suggest using the function plotter extension.
The function is y=x*x, should be quite simple setting the rest.

Re: Simulating Glass

Just a note that specific work wasn't mine, yet still a public domain svg shared by gustavorezende in 2014.
It's not so complicated to achieve from scratch though but why bother when a decent solution is right at hand.

Re: Use Imported Vectors to Reveal Solid Color Background

Hi. Inkscape uses Bézier paths to represent both of the examples above. If the geometry is done correctly, it's just setting a fill and no stroke in the fill and stroke panel (Shift+Ctrl+F). So what would be the good geometry? One compound shape of each separate segment, start-end nodes welded toget...

Ok was too sleepy yesterday. First, the function to call the radius is the opposite, something like 0,618^t -so with t=0 the multiply value is 1... Then dug up the righ "jargon" for n^t -it can be written by pow(n,t) in inkscape terms. Thus the correct functions are X-Function: cos(t*2*pi)...

Re: Less blind "Break Apart" action

Hi. Breaking apart separates every subpaths -including those making up the holes. If you switch the rendering mode to wireframe (Ctrl+5 on the numpad twice) or just rectangle select the paths, the bounding boxes should indicate they are still present. Rectangle select a charater, then combine the pa...

Re: Creating a Golden Spiral with the Spiral tool

Hi. Had constructed many of those spirals myself I never used the spiral tool. The pattern along path effect should work fluently with paths as an input. As a matter of fact if you apply the lpe to the spiral it should convert to a path to function. Thus you should experiece the same result if a spi...

Re: Export SVG to DXF

Hi. Dxf is more of a cad format. I. e. cad softwares open those rendering either filled shapes or lines, polylines etc. (Don't expect pattern fills, gradients, masking/clipping/filters, just the geometry.) Probably the latter, in your case. There are 256 predefined stroke widths which are assigned t...

Re: Why double text outline? Example: Letter O has another O inside it.

Hi.

Set the right stroke and fill attributes (Shift+Ctrl+F).
My guess is you have a semi-transparent stroke and you need to move the alpha slider back to 255.

Re: Shape fill: Use of boundary of another shape

Hi. I prefer overlapping the objects. The reason is, the anti-aliasing method the renderer uses composites the semi-transparent pixels with a simple addition which then as a result won't have the same coverage as expected. "Rendering gap issue", so to say; the background shows through at t...

Oh you got to love stereograhic projections. Used that in my thesis project . My approach was modelling a sphere with the right mesh, unwrap it to a grid layout, set a mirror texture and bake&unwrap the reflections. In your case, you'd need the baked texture to be cut into the sphere. Maybe afte...

Here is the one result I got by searching: Dee's font.
Maybe the topic is the one you are after?
(I'll also have to dig into fontforge as unsatisfied with ISOCPEUR and osifont -time to create the real deal, ISO 3098 compatible lettering).
