Meander II

Last week a user over at the gimp-forum inspired me to have a look at my 2014 Meander tutorial for Inkscape (now deactivated) and i noticed its pretty outdated...

Keep in mind: in may 2014 we were still at Inkscape version 0.48 and i didnt know the program as well as i do today.
Its also quite possible the 'Live Path Effects' (LPE) were buggy and not as refined as they are now.
So that probably explains why i used the 'Pattern Along Path' Extension and not the LPE.


Today i'll show you the best method for 2018, which is not only easier but also looks better.
