Inkscape Extension: Pattern along Path

Published › April 18, 2012 0 Comments


Inkscape ‘Pattern along Path’ and ‘Scatter’ scripts.

Here are two extensions for Inkscape:

  • The first one bends a path according to another (notice that this feature is now availbale right in inkscape via “live path effects”!!!; however, groups are not handled yet, so this script might still be usefull for complex or color full patterns…)
  • The second is similar, but the path is not deformed: it is just stamped along the second path.

For instance, you can draw a straight snake, or piece of rope, and then use this extension to give it its final wavy shape. It is pretty much like you had defined a new “stroke pattern”.
