Inkcut is a program used to send HPGL directly to cutter or plotter from Inkscape. Inkcut is used for sign making, namely cutting vinyl graphics, letters, and decals. It should support any device that uses HPGL.
- Create multiple copies of a path
- Weedlines, overcut, & blade offset compensation

Good piece of work, I recently needed some changes and with a bit coding the problems I had are gone. Can now cut with DMPL plotter as well, not just HPGL ones. Colorcut is also possible, but both functions are not in de download. Code is available.

Brillant! I can finally drive my Cogi E-1350 vinyl cutter directly from Inkscape. Worked out of the box on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS laptop (even with my cutter's serial interface via USB). Cool extension with a nice, intuitive GUI Thanks, frmdstryr! You rock.
I found problem: Linux does not support the Stellaris usb - an ACM device. Windows is not an option. .......... I think inkcut is really what the linux world needs - BUT - i cannot get my plotter working. Its a hp 7475a compatible plotter connected via usb - as /dev/ttyACM0 but when i set it up in inkcut - no reaction from plotter. I think its connection problems - but i dont really know.
Need windows version
