Pegboard SVG and How to Create a Specific Size Shape

I’m loosing my mind just a bit trying to make a pegboard on Glowforge. I need to be able to amke a specific diameter hole over and over in a line (pegboard). I cant find a cut file. Does anyone have any ideas or would be willing to make one for me to buy?

What software are you using?

This is easy peasy in Fusion360, give me the specs and I can return a SVG.

It would help to know which design app you are using.

They all have the ability to align and distribute objects evenly.

Actually, probably doesn’t matter which app you are using.

  • Draw a circle the size of the holes.
  • Duplicate for as many holes as you need in a row.
  • Move one over to one side by (number of holes -1) * spacing.
  • Select them all.
  • Use “Distribute horizontally” and “Align vertically” to make a uniform row.

If you want to make a grid, group that row, then repeat steps 2-5, but switching horizontal for vertical.

I have Procreate
Autodesk sketchbook
an Affinity designer which I do not understand

But how do you make sure the diameter of the circles is always .5 inches?

OMG thank you!!!
12 x20
holes 1/2 inch or .5

I just did this for someone on my CNC forum using Inkscape and the tiled clone.

circles grid half inch

Not sure how far you want them spaced. And I adjusted for normal kerf so hole should be pretty much .5" in medium ply.

Sorry, I got watching a movie after work and almost forgot my assignment.

I’m not sure but @marmak3261 may have made you more what you are looking for.

Standard perboard is 1/4" holes on 1" centers, that is what I made you.
In the zip there is an svg but there is also a Fusion 360 file that you can edit to your hearts content.
