As a first pass at using SVG, I was experimenting with using an Inkscape extension to emulate a brass pattern layout machine.
This was not completed, but I’ll revisit it as I gain knowledge of inkscape and SVG.
I’ve posted the files on the wiki. I’d love to hear comments from inkscape and SVG experts about what I’m doing right/wrong.
[UPDATE] Having spent time reading the SVG spec, I see some very obvious improvements to be made in this. I should have started there instead of with the Inkscape API. You can comment if you want to, but I’m already moving on from this . . .
