Re: Cutting plotter makes dashes instead of straight lines

Re: Cutting plotter makes dashes instead of straight lines

Re: Cutting plotter makes dashes instead of straight lines

Okay I downloaded that program, I followed the instructions, like INkCut, it did not install, it does not show up in extensions. The only reason why I think it might not work is maybe, windows installs Inkscape to the program files folder, and not program ...

Re: Resurrecting InkCut!

Is this already listed in the extensions gallery on the website? https://inkscape.org/en/gallery/=extension/

If it isn't, could you ask the author to share a link to it from there? (How-to is linked from the above page)

Resurrecting InkCut!

The InkCut extension has long been the most advanced way to drive a cutter/plotter from Inkscape, but unfortunately became unmaintained. Good news! frmdstryr has been working on a rewrite, see the website at https://www.codelv.com/projects/inkcut/ ...

Re: Inkscape and Inkcut v1.0

This particular bug should be fixed in 0.92.1


The current stable version is 0.92.2 already.... Except maybe for Mac, depending on how you install it.

Re: Inkscape and Inkcut v1.0

Actually we had a recent message on a different Inkscape forum, who was connected with a USB port, but the extension only offers serial port, for some reason. That seems rather odd to me, not to be able to accomodate both kinds of ports. Perhaps a bit offtopic as the OP's cable certainly seemed lik...

Re: Inkscape and Inkcut v1.0

It's much more difficult to code for usb ports than serial ports, in my opinion serial is far more reliable than flakey usb ports. Many counterfeit usb>serial chips on the market! My app "Tux Plot" will use serial, usb, parallel, ethernet. I'm just putting the finishing touches on a new fe...
