Fill wide curve with paths

Postby Fires » Tue Sep 10, 2019 8:43 pm

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.
Your mind is what you think it is.
