An Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format.
Inkscape supports many advanced SVG features (markers, clones, alpha blending, etc.) and great care is taken in designing a streamlined interface. It is very easy to edit nodes, perform complex path operations, trace bitmaps and much more. We also aim to maintain a thriving user and developer community by using open, community-oriented development.

Reason for this BuildWe wanted to beef up this build from the wood/printed parts version that are available to a V-Slot version where we can later add a dremel style router for some serious hard core engraving fun! We also wanted to make sure it was modular so that we could work with bigger projects.
