Map making help

I’ve been working on street maps and have been really happy with them so far. That said, I’ve been scoring the street lines and would like to turn them into cuts for more 3D effect. Any tips on widening the streets to be able to cut them. As is, I think they’re going to be too fine of a cut to work. If it helps to know I’m using snazzymaps to create the map and Inkscape to edit.

Try offset path, I use Illustrator but I believe it’s the same or similar in Inkscape.


Stroke to path, followed by a union.

If you can upload what you’re working with we can give you more direct advice. It’s hard to tell what you’re trying to do, you might mean engraving or cutting.
