I gave up on the Inkscape to Adobe to laser stuff for vector cutting pretty quick. I downloaded a trial version of Corel draw tonight to improve on a few things from last night. And it worked.
With a little patience I created two sided business cards and the painting stencil for snow plow signs.
1: a 450 cfn exhaust fan is enough to suck your business cards right out of the house as soon as they are cut from sheet stock.
2: Corel draw makes vector graphic work much easier
3: Lis is very skilled and gifted with the cad tools.
