Re: drill file, how to made?

Hi. Inkscape might not be the best program for designing PCB's. There are a lot of free PCB cad programs better suited for the job. Eagle PCB is very popular - the free version is good for hobbyists. If you want to stick to Inkscape here are some links worth looking at: http://nerdclub-uk.blogspot.n...

Re: drill file, how to made?

Hi. In what program did you design your PCB? The PCB cad program should be able to make the drill files. The excelleon file is not much more than a list of coordinates for the PCB holes. You can "generate" these files with a text editor by getting the coordinates in Inkscape. See the excel...

Re: convert svg to jpg

Hi. I seem to lose extensions with uploads, so will wait until I upgrade to 92.2. A lot of the recommendations (some found here on the forum) on installing extensions tells you to install them in the Inkscape install directory. For me this is not the best solution as the extensions will not "su...

Re: [Extension] Draw from triangle: draw normals from the incentre

Hi.

You are asking for calculations but refer to the extensions - do you need to calculate the points or just draw the normals?

Extensions - Draw From Triangle - Contact Triangle - will give you the points.

Easy to draw the normals using snapping.

Re: Convert fill to stroke

Hi. For efficient plotting you would want a continuous line, the plotter would then not need to lift the pen which slow down the plotting. Easiest way to add hatching which is a continuous line is to use the extensions made for the Eggbot plotter. Eggbot Overview Link to the extensions: Extensions L...

Hi.

By the way - the '3' key maximizes the selected object(s) to fill the screen - can be quite handy as well.

Re: Update a extension to work on 0.91 Living Hinges

Hi.

If you are using Inkscape version 0.91 (or later) you have to edit the py files and change inkex.unittouu to self.unittouu for the extensions to work.
