Video plan: Inkscape for Laser Cutting

In this video, I'm going to demonstrate how to use Inkscape to create a laser cutting pattern for use with the Epilog Mini 24 laser cutter. I'm going to create an example drawing and save it in the file format we normally use with out Epilog laser cutter. The file we'll end up with would probably work with any Epilog laser cutter, but for other laser cutters, some details (such as the required line thickness or colour) may differ. However, I expect that most of the drawing principles will remain the same.

Although the laser cutter is capable of cutting and engraving, in this example, I'm not going to include any engraving regions - just cutting lines.
