3D printing using the OpenSCAD cookie cutter add-on

I just had my first 3D print experience thanks to the OpenSCAD cookie cutter add-on by Alexander Pruss. I did the simple outline in Inkscape then saved it as an OpenSCAD file. I checked the file in OpenSCAD, exported it to a .stl file and sent it to my local library Creative Lab to be printed. It to...

Re: Is it a bug or intended to be that way?

Thanks brynn. I didn't think it was a bug either so thanks for confirming. I work with type a lot in Inkscape so it looks like I'm going to keep working with version 0.48.

Is it a bug or intended to be that way?

I was thinking about reporting a possible bug having to do with a font not showing all of the weights in Inkscape 0.92 like it does in Inkscape 0.48. But then it may not be a bug after all. When I want to use the Roboto font in Inkscape 0.48 I can choose Roboto Ultra-Light but that font weight doesn...

Using Inkscape professionally

I would like to try asking this again. I am curious to know if anyone uses Inkscape to earn a living. Most of the graphics related jobs I find listed want designers who are experienced in other popular illustration software. So is there anyone out there who uses Inkscape in a professional capacity? ...

Earning a living using Inkscape

Does anyone earn a living using Inkscape?

Every graphic design position I have come across in the last two months requires one to be proficient with Adobe Illustrator as well as Photoshop and InDesign.

I have experience using Inkscape and have liked it ever since I found it.

brynn, Thank you for the kinds words. Thanks for posting the link to the stretched out spiral. I have played around with spirals but not like that. I'm thinking now instead of making a wire ring instead of a string which may be more appropriate. We have some bunches of keys that have some of those w...

Re: Wacom tablet

Thanks for the reply. It sounds like it will work. I read a review from someone who purchased a refurbished one via Amazon and he said it worked with GIMP also. How do you like the Wacom Bamboo pen?

Thanks for the tips and link. This will be a good start. I saw another portrait that someone did that was also exceptionally well done and now I can't remember where I found it on the web. Anyway it will be interesting to see what you do next.
