Re: Can anyone suggest a way to make zero-width cuts in path

or type in the coordinate that all should have the same. Where do I type the coordinate, please? I tried Object, Transform but this does not work on points. Sorry I was wrong with the coordinates, second checked that. It only moves selected points together. You can type it on the top menu's boxes w...

Re: Can anyone suggest a way to make zero-width cuts in path

I don't know what is your main goal with this, but doubles are not "good" for this drawing type's logic. I'm guessing you want to display a path between two different path's nodes as one object. It would be better, if you combine -or group- the the two paths and the one in between together...

Re: Can anyone suggest a way to make zero-width cuts in path

One other method, which might help, if you have all topology as you want, you can window select all the points that should be aligned, and use the align and distribute menu to make them aligned onto one horizontal or vertical line or type in the coordinate that all should have the same. That way you...

Re: Can anyone suggest a way to make zero-width cuts in path

I try to use snapping as less as I can, also, the thing you want to achieve with the path. The problem is, if you have a path that has double points in one exact position, AND you want to edit the path furthermore by adding/substracting/intersecting other paths to it, inkscape automatically merges t...

Re: Can anyone suggest a way to make zero-width cuts in path

Here is a way to achieve the result:

Image

1. cut the path into the right topology
2. pull out a guide line in the right position
3. enable snapping
4. move points into the right position-snap them to the guide line

Re: I request more CAD-like features

Because the circles are not accurate, just use the polygon, with the curves made rounded -cad uses the same method. On the image posted 48points were used per "circles". Why, or how, are circles not accurate? http://openclipart.org/people/Lazur%20URH/1360673204.svg Around the path the dis...

Re: Tutorial: A Product Box in accurate perspective

It all can be done much easier in blender, with better shading/texture options.
If there are interest, I can make a part 5 on this.

construction of a golden-proportion-rectangle

The idea came from Orimdam here . Mathematical background The golden ratio means the following: a:b=b:(a+b) which is equal with this: a*(a+b)=b^2 furthermore a^2+ab=b^2 b^2-ab-a^2=0 which results as b=(a+-(a^2+4a^2)^0.5)/2=a*(1+5^0.5)/2 thus the golden ratio can be written in a more direct form: a:b...

Thank's!

Will post some spiral approximations with the use of circles soon.

Re: Op-art-ish and such

I do realise inkscape is vector, and mspaint is not. It was mot that relevant to the post, just something that means it's on my mind since more than I knew inkscape.

Re: Op-art-ish and such

Thank's for the quick feedback! Iteration would be good for the start to achive, as the first two images are based on iterating the scaling of an object, and placing the scaled one over the top. The parameters should be something like defining two numbers for the scaling percentage, and one to be th...

Iterative art

Hello world, I'm new to this forum, searched it a bit and assuming this is the right place to start off. I have been using inkscape for some years now, and, want to progress more. Would post things in the help sections, but I'm guessing an image can tell more than words. So here is what I made (clic...
