This was just a test, but it was a really fun way to try using some new free software.
I received my Pro a little more than a week ago and I just found a new tool for putting tabs onto designs. I wanted to test it out, so I ripped open an Amazon shipping box, opened up Inkscape and drew a quick star and few rectangles.
After breaking all of the shapes into individual line segments (see this how to) I then opened up this amazing tool called Joinery.
The software is run in browser and it is here.
The instructable showing how to use it is here
It allows you to select two edge and make them “joined”. Then you get to set how you want them joined. In my case I used Finger Joints, but if you wanted to make it out of leather and have hemmed edges with precut thread holes, there is an option for that. I can’t wait to try it out on leather.
