Step 3: Download and open free Inkscape design templates
Once you've downloaded the Starter Kit, you'll see there are 3 Ponoko design templates for Inkscape to choose from.
For this jewelry item you'll be working with the smallest material size available - it is called the "P1" (short for Ponoko material size #1).
Open the P1.svg Ponoko design template in Inkscape. To do this you can double click on the svg file or use the menu options inside Inkscape (File > Open) and then find the P1.svg file from there.
After you open the P1.svg file in Inkscape, you'll see an orange box with the words 'Safe Area'. This is the area in which your design must fit. It's dimensions are 7.1 x 7.1 inches or 181 x 181 mm.
(If you're interested, the Starter Kit also includes the Ponoko Making Guide which contains all sorts of helpful information about designing and making with Ponoko).
Now it's time to get all creative and design something ...
