First trace with Glowgon


#1

17 minutes. Came out okay. Need to find a way to combine an svg for the hole.


#2

Looks fantastic! (Thought you were going for an escutcheon at first.) :smile:


#3

Nice!!!

Most of us have a small library of geometric shapes in SVG format that we can drag in at whim. Lines, circles, boxes in various aspect ratios, etc…


#4

This guy went a little overboard with the idea, but it works…


#5

Another option is to use a compass to draw a circle (if you happen to have one laying around).


#6

I suspect he means in the software. Inkscape has many options and I usually have to hit undo a lot before I find the one that gives the effect I want.

If we are talking about the non virtual world, I can usually lay my hands on a pill bottle, or spice jar much faster, than a compass.


#7

It was my first trace so I decided to stay with drawing by hand for the whole thing. I still have circle templates from my drafting days as well.
