Tank truck

Post by Twisted 1 » Sun Mar 11, 2018 10:56 pm

Hi all, I am trying to trace this in inkscape and can't seem to get a good trace. I was wondering if someone has a truck and tank similar or if someone could help me out. I am willing to learn but am having a hard time as I am new to inkscape. Thanks in advance

The ideal thing in Inkscape is to have a black and white picture and no background, shadows or glare off the subject to be able to auto trace.

Yeah, that's going to be a manual trace to get that cuttable. Here's one from the internet with some bridging. It's far from exact but maybe it will help.

Thanks for the truck file Robert. I will give Inkscape another try. It’s for a donation to my company that I work for. We do a fundraiser every year for prostate cancer called Plaid for Dad

No problem, I know it was a long way from the picture haha but it's what I found in a search. I can do a manual trace but that's one I'd have to charge for. My email is [email protected] if you decide you want to try that route.

Here's my try. Files included are bmp, svg and dxf. Might need to thicken up some lines. Hope it helps.

Your welcome. I like a challenge and it's for a great cause. I just noticed the dxf had a couple broken lines and I've attached that issue fixed. Seems Corel took a few libertys. Some of the lines are very close together so check them out.
