I'm new to translating work in general and for Inkscape in particular.
I intend to start translation to Swedish but I am not sure how it works.
Are there more people working on the Swedish translatino currently?
If so, am I supposed to cooperate so that we can divide work between us or should I just go ahead and translate?
Some advice would be great :-)
I have contributed a pair of extensions that I refer to as
Inkscape2pcb in the Inkscape contributions gallery.
The extension code is primarily hosted on github at
These extensions make it easier to create freeform artwork and outline
geometry on printed circuit boards (PCBs), by allowing export of
Inkscape paths to PCB layout features.
Export to the following formats is possible:
1) the pcb-rnd layout editor as a subcircuit in native pcb-rnd lihata
file format (.lht)
( see http://repo.hu/projects/pcb-rnd/ )
2) the gEDA PCB layout editor as a footprint in native gEDA PCB
footprint format (.fp)
( see http://pcb.geda-project.org/ )
3) KiCad users, indirectly, who can import gEDA PCB footprints from within KiCad
( see https://kicad-pcb.org/ )
The export script for pcb-rnd will also export paths as polygons,
along with the outlines, provided the paths depict simple, non
self-intersecting polygons. The pcb-rnd layout editor has a more
capable data model than gEDA PCB, allowing polygons within footprints,
and also load and save in KiCad formats.
I have contributed a simple export script that exports Inkscape paths
as gcode suitable for cheap laser cutters running GRBL based
I wanted a simple, no-nonsense exporter that produced g-code ready to
send to a low cost ebay DIY laser cutter with a gcode sender like
Universal g-code Sender ( see https://winder.github.io/ugs_website/ ).
I have tested it with GRBL 0.8c on a stock ebay bought laser cutter
with inkscape version 0.92.
The laser control is simple on/off.
The primary repository is at:
Enjoy responsibly, and avoid reflected and direct laser light exposure!!
I'm Dieter and this is my first entry to this mailing list. As I really appreciate the efforts of the inkscape developers I would like to contribute by reporting issues/bugs.
I've noticed that, whenever I add the LPE (Pattern along path) on a "perfect" circle (created with Ctrl -> make whole ellipse -> Object to path), the circle (the path for the pattern) gets slightly deformed - subsequently the pattern also doesn't follow a perfect circle. I'm able to replicate the problem (also with default preferences).
Originally, I wanted to report this as a bug, but the inkscape website suggests to ask around first. So, does anybody know if this is a known issue or if it should behave like this (I suppose not)? On GitHub I couldn't find an entry for this particular issue.
