Cutting a graphic into two parts

Postby Searchman » Fri Dec 08, 2017 2:51 pm

I have a graphic that I want to cut in half so I can cut it on my plasma table. Then I can cut the two halves separatly and weld them together later. Simple way is nice for this guy

So what program are you wanting to cut it in half with? CorelDraw, Inkscape, other? A little more information would be helpful.

You may be able to index your plate and cut it all out.

Find a place on the drawing that works for a line to run across, use the divider tool separate the two halves draw a line from one point to the other on each piece then save them as two files.
Am I missing something here :?: :roll:
