Fun connect-the-dots maker with Inkscape

So, there’s an extension under Visualize Path->Number Nodes… that will take any path and convert the nodes to numbered dots. You can change the text and dot size.

With an appropriately simple path (Path->simplify might help you here), you can quickly go from the path on the left to the CTD on the right:

The dots and numbers are grouped together, you’ll need to break them apart to manipulate any individual number or dot placement. I’m sure someone will find a fun use for this!


Thanks for the heads up on the inkscape number nodes.
I think I’m going to find that useful in orientating cuts to minimise ‘dead time’.

Oh yeah, good thinking. Clever use.

You could use it to make some pretty durable “sewing cards” for toddlers.
