Not sure if its already been mentioned as not had time to keep up on the forum, but just in case not..

SCAL 3.030 is out which has some bug fixes, it now imports bitmaps embedded in SVG's (still a little bit buggy though) and enables you to send an SVG directly from Inkscape to SCAL to cut by going to Extensions->Export->Send To Sure Cuts A Lot 3

You need to install the Inkscape plugin to do this..

PC - http://www.craftedge.com/bin/SCAL3_InkscapePlugin.exe

Mac - http://www.craftedge.com/bin/SCAL3_InkscapePlugin.zip

Once you install the plugin you can design your file in inkscape and select the export option to send it to SCAL to cut without all that saving and importing nonsense - very, very, VERY pleased to see this

I contacted him about a plugin version quite some time ago, I created an inkscape plugin to send the file across but SCAL was unable to automatically open it.

But Brandon has put together an automatic plugin install file which is much better than messing about installing mine manually.. Now I just need to figure out how to remove mine again because I have two send to signcuts LOL
