"Versaworks" is not in the list (Altium, Ansys, ArcGIS, Arduino, CutStudio, EES, Inkscape, Logic, MATLAB, MicrochipStudio, ...) of allowed values for the "Uses software" property.

TV Tshirt Icon

In this TV, we will attach a logo on the front and back of a T-Shirt. We will use the Vinyl Cutter for the single color icon of this TV and use this for the front left of the T-shirt. The Maker Hub logo will be printed on the Vinyl Printer+Cutter and attached to the back. The Vinyl will all be affixed using the Heat Press.

Familiarize yourself with Inkscape

Follow the directions given in the Training section on the Inkscape page.

We will use this logo for the front of the shirt. It will be a single color, so we will use the Vinyl Cutter to cut it out.

  • Download TV_Shell.svg.
  • Download T_shirt_outline.jpg.
  • Open up the TV_Shell.svg in Inkscape.
  • Import the T_Shirt_outline.jpg into Inkscape.
  • Now turn this raster image into a vector image. With the image selected, run Path->Trace Bitmap. In the dialog box, I selected "Remove Background" so that the vector would be transparent. I also selected "Live Preview" so that I could see what was happening with different options. As it turns out, for this very simple bitmap, the default works just fine.

  • After you click OK, it looks like nothing has happened, except that the select focus changes to the T-shirt itself. This is because there is actually another new object on top of the image - the newly created T-shirt trace. Try moving it.

  • If you click on the "Edit Paths by Node" symbol Inkscape Edit Paths By Node.png you will see that the image is now a vector made up of a series of paths

  • Return to the standard select tool. Select the box that is around the TV screen (it was placed there just for this purpose), and shift-select the new T-shirt Image. Use the Object->Align and Distribute command to bring up the Align and Distribute window, and then align them on center both vertically and horizontally.
