Hello, I’ve been trying to use Line-us primarily to go from Processing vector exports to Line-us plotting.
I export my sketches from Processing via PDF format, which I then import into Inkscape and use the LUS extension to print to Line-Us. The problem I’m facing is that I can never tell how to position and place the art work on the canvas for ideal printing.
In most cases, Line-Us attempts to draw elements that are far beyond it’s drawing radius, and spends an awful lot of time hanging around the edge, moving around and drawing dots towards the edges. In some cases, the artwork is much smaller than seen on screen, or it only draws a part of it.
Is there a template, or a way to position artwork in Inkscape to ensure that I can crop out extra elements, and ensure that I can predict exactly how it will look like from the screen itself? I tried playing around with document that shows the extents of the printer, but that doesn’t seem to help.
