Hi, I using Inkscape as SVG -> Gcode tool for laser engraver. I looking for way how infil wide curves with paths..

For example I want outline lines to be wider as infill lines.. So I need pass laser more times at outline with little ofset.

Is any way how generate multiple paths on line with this offset ? Thanks

I don´t get the picture - maybe an annotated screenshot will help. I mean there´s Path->Outset or ->Dynamic Offset - but I´m still not sure if this will help.

Cheers

It sounds like you are looking for a way to hatch fill or shade. Inkscape has built in Hatches (rough)

and there are user built extensions that are precise shadings as well.
