Ming Knot as geometry and image when made with wood veneers

by HenryM - uploaded on September 20, 2021, 12:53 pm

This shows the svg file of a Ming Dynasty Celtic like knot. Also shown is a picture of the knot made from a number of different veneers. The geometry of the pieces was taken directly from the svg file. The pieces of veneer were cut using a Cricut Maker and then mounted on a base board

The svg file was created in Inkscape by reading in the original svg file and using the path trace option in Inkscape.

It is a 2nd remix to hopefully have a more acceptable image of the 'wood veneer' version as the smooth option was turned off.


Thanks – sorted as you can see. It would be good to hear your views about the Units question below (I may have deleted your answer when I deleted the bad remix!)

As the note says I turned the smooth option off. The image did get nearly 6 times larger but looks better. What do do think?

Also I have a 'units' question. All the svg file elements have a scale to make it 2.86 times larger (so it gives the correct mm size in an application I use). What is the best practice when uploading to this site. For example, should the scale simply be 1. OR perhaps having the mm size it used in the CAD system would be better. If mm are preferred what is the best way to implement this in the svg file?
