Is there a way to draw wiggly lines with Inkscape? (I don't mean handdrawn wiggles, those are never regular; I need wiggles which have the same size everywhere on the path). A related question: is there a way to draw paths with a "spring" or "coil" shape superposed on it? Thanks, Kasper

Try the Kochify extension: select a single wiggle and do Kochify Load, then select the path itself and do Kochify. The wiggle will be applied repeatedly along the path. > A related question: is there a > way to draw paths with a "spring" or "coil" shape superposed on it? Not directly, but you can create a spiral, then convert it to path and Alt+drag the central node (see an example in the middle of http://inkscape.osuosl.org/screenshots/gallery/inkscape0.44nodesculpting.png)  bulia byak Inkscape.

If you draw out a standard rectangle with a stroke and no fill, you can turn it into a squiggly line with Effects >> Render >> Function Plotter. For a basic squiggle, you'd want either sin(x) or cos(x), though you could probably make more interesting squiggles with things like sin(x)**2 or sin(x**2). I assume the script takes '**' for powers as it's written in Python. Yay, maths. Raeth On 10/31/06, Kasper Peeters <kasper.peeters@...> wrote: > Is there a way to draw wiggly lines with Inkscape?

Nit: as far as squiggling sins are concerned, sin(x)**2 squiggles just as boringly as sin(x) but twice as fast and half as wide.

All right, try sin(x)**3 :P Raeth On 11/14/06, Boris Borcic <bborcic@...> wrote: > Raeth wrote: > > For a basic squiggle, you'd want either sin(x) or cos(x), > > though you could probably make more interesting squiggles with things > > like sin(x)**2 or sin(x**2). > > Nit: as far as squiggling sins are concerned, sin(x)**2 squiggles just as > boringly as sin(x) but twice as fast and half as wide.
