Stencil Bridges

Postby mwbaker » Sun Jul 23, 2017 11:55 pm


I use inkscape to create stencils and would like a way to add bridges (tabs) to hold in centres of designs either automatically or semi automatically.

There are design programs like sir cuts alot and invue that offer a tool that allows you to manually draw a rectangular path that is used to divide a path below it. Neither of these programs offer the breath of tools that inkscape does so I am looking how to get this feature added or an extension written that does the same thing.

Anyone got any ideas how to go about either of these?

Is there some reason why you can't use rectangles in Inkscape, to do the same thing?
