Placing existing Inkscape designs onto a Ponoko template
posted this on April 30, 2013, 10:30
As you should know by now, it's essential that any design created in Inkscape for laser-cutting with Ponoko must be on our Inkscape templates.
This is easy if you started your laser-cut design by opening our template and creating your design on it - but slightly trickier if you've already created your design file in Inkscape.
Here is a design I created in Inkscape without using a Ponoko template:
If I uploaded this design directly to Ponoko without placing it on a template first, it would actually scale up in size by 20%. The parts I got back would not be the size I designed them, and everybody loses.
