I am trying to make a fingerjoint box with a wraparound engraved pattern (Line engraving). I have both the box outline and the pattern I want as paths, but I'm having trouble clipping the pattern to inside the box side area. I can clip it and it looks great, but inkscape uses non-destructive clipping so if I export it as a dxf and open it in another program, the clipping is taken away and the full unclipped pattern is showing. I've tried boolean methods and it doesn't give me any usable results. Any ideas for how to destructively clip in inkscape?
