Feedback about: Laser Cut Keyguards


Some laser cutters use Inkscape to design the cuts. Similar to Jamie Crum’s step-by-step for Google Draw, import the screen captured into Inkscape* then draw circles/rounded rectangles/etc. for the desired cutouts.

This is why it’s relatively easy to laser cut a keyguard with a captured screen!

* Sometimes, the screen captured is not sized correctly because of pixel-size, screen-capture software, etc.. To fix this, draw a rectangle in the exact size of the screen captured. Stretch the imported image to fit the width and length of the (correct) size of screen. This rectangle may be deleted before final keyguard (laser) cutting or left in the design file with a line-width that will not be “cut”.
