Nice engrave … nice project.

Beautiful piece! I especially like the mandala design :heart_eyes: Are you going to make it a box or book cover or… :upside_down_face:

For inkscape users I have a plugin which creates a variety of living hinges. If you want it send me a PM


That’s great! I am starting to love living hinges!

Ooh - yes please :slight_smile:

thanks :blush: i was surprised how nice the mandala came out on the chip board. im gonna make just mandala pendants and seal it with resin

Check out some of the posts from the first years of the forum. There are some great ones discussing living hinges, sources for them and how to make them.

I think the locking of old posts is a detriment to keeping the collective wisdom aware of all the amazing resources that are in this forum. They actually seem to be quite useless in some ways if they don’t get the attention of newer users.

Always good to be reminded.


i did do a search on here found the link i was so happy it actually worked. just got the link for a plug in inkscape living hinges excited to see if i can get thst to work too😊

Let me know if there are issues with the living hinge extension from Inkscape. It works well but needs some testing.
