V carve pro vs Inkscape


#1

Just got me GF pro. I’m a bit familiar designing on V carve pro as I have a Xcarve CNC. I know I don’t have to use Inkscape as recommended by GF but can I use Vcarve pro? If so… How ??? Thanks


#2

If it will export as PDF or SVG, then you are good to go.


#3

You will want Inkscape as well for handleing raster items but yes, use Vcarve all you want, it is a great program.

Put cuts on one (or more) layers and scores on another in different colors. When you are done, simply export the SVG insted of proceding to the toolpathing.


#4

You can do raster manipulation in VCarve Pro too. Don’t think you can trace it and convert to a vector though.


#5

I’m talking about inbeding and such. I’ll have to take a look.
