Posting in this category opens a support ticket. This isn’t a Glowforge support matter so I am going to move this.

No…it’s the one reason that I installed Inkscape when I got started doing this.

But…It’s fairly easy to copy and paste to create your own if you know the diameter of your circle …that’s what I usually do in AI, and it works extremely well for hinges that don’t break:

For a circle the circumference is 2πr, so for a half circle, I just use πr. Then I normally add the thickness of the wood for ease. (Results in excellent hinges that do not wear out with use because they are not strained.)

thx

You can cheat and get nearly elliptical with Makercase’s “kerf bent box”
(not AI specific, generates SVG or DXF files that can be opened in AI)
