Rhinoceros is a design tool in 2D and 3D. The wide variety of formats with which it can operate, allows it to act as a conversion tool, allowing breaking the compatibility barriers between programs during the development of the design.

Import, scale, offset and prepare for plotter or Laser

Scale (change size)

1: Import image. File–>Import
2: Define the measurements. With the rectangle tool we create a rectangle with the measurements that we want.


To put the measurements we write them on the command line, it is very important to read Rhino, in this line you ask for measurements and all the information you need to continue with the design that is being done at all times. This line is in the top bar.


4: As our image consists of several independent parts we group them to work better. We select the Group tool that is in the left bar of the program. We select the entire image by dragging from left to right and press Group.


5: We select the image by dragging on the screen from right to left, by default it will turn yellow, we drag it inside our rectangle and select the tool to scale.


6: In the command line we will tell you the steps to follow.
7: We already have our image prepared for plotter, laser …


To cut with textile vinyl plotter you can choose to leave the image with the entire silhouette of your design or you can create a lag, for this we use the offset command that allows your design to have the appearance of a stroke.


Working with layers is comfortable when you have to laser cut or plotter different parts in the same design.
You just have to assign a color to each layer and turn off the layers that you are not going to work with.
