I am working on marquetry, where I use a laser cutter. I'd like to use Inkscape in a mode similar to ArcMap's cut polygon. In ArcMap, I can create property lines (think new subdivision) with an existing shape (property boundary) that gets cut using the Cut Polygon tool. Very simple, you select the larger shape, then use the Cut Polygon tool to draw lines for your new properties.
I can kinda do this in Inkscape using Division Path. I create separate objects, tracing over an existing drawing, and then overlay and knock out the common boundary. A bit clunky. Hoping to find a simpler way to do this.
I can give more detail, there's a number of steps I left out as I start with a drawing from my wife, but thought I'd start with this much to see if it sparks anyone.
Here's an example I am currently working on. The numbers are for each area, including the background. This is on tracing paper and was scanned in. I'd like to bring into Inkscape and trace over there with the pen tool.
