Inkscape Tutorials – Designing a Maker Rail Base for a Tripod

Please visit for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be designing a base plate for a camera slider we have been working in Inkscape to cut out on our K40 eBay Chinese CO2 Laser Cutter & Engraver.

As the idea behind these video will be to not so much share how to use and application such as Inkscape, yet how get an idea from your head into reality. As the goal of creating is to share how to create something from your minds eye to an object you can hold in your hand. Technology such as 3D Printing, laser cutting and CNC machining has placed amazing capabilities in the hands of the masses, yet the key tool still between your ears.
