A bit of inksçape geometry

inkscape

#1

Playing with Inkscape and rotating an ellipse I came up with this:

x


#2

Nice! Love those accidental “Eureka” moments! :grinning:


#3

That’s pretty damned cool.


#4

Playing with the idea some more…


#5

And still smaller the lines are too thin to cut out but not too thin to engrave.


#6

Then there are the earrings…


#7

A Fine wandering though a program results in a highly re-purposeful design. Many from one.


#8

a bit too deep engrave on 1/16 walnut


#9

This design would also make a nifty guitar pick. I’m not sure what material to use for that, though. Acrylic, I think, might prove to be to brittle and inflexible.


#10

Natural turtle shell I think if available from a legal source. I had some manufacturing scrap back in 1975ish that was probably 20 years old then from an estate of an old jeweler that you might have managed that, but I don’t know if you can even posses it now… The plastic that emulates it sold these days, would be interesting to look at but I would have no idea of the chemistry of that plastic.
