Inkscape is a powerful program that allows you to create and edit graphics. It is open source, works on Windows, Mac and Linux computers and is available to download for free here
Inkscape will be the primary program that we are going to use to design text and images for making things on the laser cutter, vinyl cutter and eggbot.
As with any complex program, the learning curves is a little steep. Lucky for you I found some great online tutorials.
The first Inkscape assignment will be to:
1) Go through the super-basic tutorial on the interface and basic tools:
2) Pick one of the beginning tutorials on this page to create your own vector graphic.
3) Save the graphic and send as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
