Here's how I would do it in Inkscape Resize the page to give yourself a bit more room. Unsing the Select by Nodes tool F2 select, then convert the little rectanglular holes to paths using Path > Stroke to Path Ungroup the pieces, regroup the top two pieces together Rotate the top group so the pieces are the same way up as the bottom two pieces Using the ...

I have no idea why you would ever bother trying to do this in Illustrator. Surely you aren't supplying vector product mockups to clients. So I assume all you need is a jpg, png, or pdf of the mockup. Photoshop makes this very easy.... Illustrator doesn't. You, of course, want the vector (Illustrator) logo, but you can utilize that in Photoshop directly. The ...

Never run paper through a laser printer twice unless it is specifically designed to do so and has a "duplex" feature. If your laser printer is not designed to print double-sided (duplex) on its own, all you are doing is damaging the printer which will eventually mean you'll need a new one. You are damaging the drum when you do this. The drum is essentially ...

The question may be more suited to a laser related forum, as the answer lies with the characteristics of the laser more than with the graphics program. My experience with my laser is that one has to change settings for the laser power as well as adjust an image to create an appropriately contrast within the image. My laser software (LightBurn) also allows ...

Lasers tend to be inferior to inkjets for raw color reproduction, especially on the low end (i.e. less than $25K). That's because inkjets can cleanly render a single dot, allowing them to use sophisticated dithering schemes that finely spread microscopic dots (in the 4 or more ink colors available) all over the area in question. Not are the individual dots ...

Not sure about the price you have been quoted or whether A4 will do but I would recommend Oki data units. The Oki C610n Colour A4 is 2440 dpi and I have seen it quoted online for £230. The 'n' is for network / ethernet built in which I would recommend if you are shipping lots of data. I have been running the same Oki B4350n unit for 10+ years now in a ...

Toner particles allways stick into a little larger area than the photo-exposed one. That's because the electric tractive force can be strong enough to hold the particles, even if it comes a little from aside.

The case cutline file you link to is .svg, and will work in any competent vector art or CADD program, from InkScape to Affinity Designer to Adobe Illustrator to Draftsight (was free CADD, now $99 license and darn good too - I use it in architecture to replace AutoCAD and it does everything I need) or even AutoCAD. However, the two other design files you ...

I have a very different answer for you - simpler, faster and a better workflow for you - back in ArchiCAD. Save all the elements of that live view into a worksheet or a detail, and then run first the Linework Consolidation wizard, and then the Fill Consolidation wizard... and then export out as PDF. You will have a radically simplified illustrator file ...

Inkjet printers use pigmented liquid to provide colors. As such, it is possible to create colors which interact well with transmitted light as well as with reflected light, especially when considering bleed and color overlap. Laser printers use pigmented particles (solids) which provide for reflected light coloration and virtually no blending/bleeding. The ...

Lumion is a premium priced package. Quite few of us can afford it, so it's well possible that you get only guesses (like this) or nothing. You obviously want nothing physically realistic, but something which is familiar from games or movies. Real laser beams aren't visible if they bypass one's eyes. The glow in the air is illuminated dust, smoke or vapor. ...

I guess in white areas of the photo the material is intact and in other areas it gets removed more or less and gets darker. If that's true, you should only use strictly BW images without colors nor grays. You can convert grayscale image to line art with find edges-filtering. Another way is to have coarse enough halftoning in grayscale areas. You can use ...

I feel your pain. This printer is the worst electronic item I have ever owned. I've been in touch with HP support about this for over a week now. The only answers they give me is: "We discussed the case with L2 and they informed us that it is a product limitation. The printer that you have is a very basic printer and might not be able to print pictures ...

I am answering my own question once again, Ok after some trial and error testing, no it does not. It is simply a measurement unit. Let me give you an example: Let's consider that we have a circle with a circumference of 100mm. We can have 1000 plotter units of 0.1 each or 100 units of 1.0 each. Its the same thing and it does not affect in any way the ...
