Making Scroll Saw Patterns with Inkscape – L3

We’re moving right along with lesson 3 of our classroom series as we learn to use Inkscape to make our own scroll saw patterns. This lesson we learn to align our objects. This lesson plays a huge role as we need precise positioning of our objects to create our pattern. First, we talk about layers and object order. Then we’ll discuss the very handy option of grouping objects which gives us great latitude for control and manipulation. We take a peek at guidelines as useful reference. And lastly, we take the guesswork out of object placement and discuss the aligning and distributing tools. You can find the video, written instruction, downloadable source material and classroom discussion at Scroll Saw Village in the Village University forum.
