Introducing Inkscape

Inkscape

Inkscape is a professional quality vector graphics editor that’s available for free. It runs on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux operating systems. Since it’s so accessible, we use it for examples and troubleshooting.

If you run into a snag with a file or an upload, we may suggest that you open it in Inkscape – it’s a way for us to make sure we’re looking at the same thing as we work together.

Install Inkscape

Installing Inkscape involves a quick download from the Inkscape site.

Learn Inkscape

You can learn how to use Inkscape through Inkscape’s tutorial pages or from our own users in the Glowforge Tips and Tricks page on the Glowforge forum.
