What does characterise mean?
Answer: Describe/understand the nature and features (of your particular laser cutter)
Can I use the Inkscape clone tool for my pressfit kit?
Answer: No. The clone tool is not a real parametric software.
What is valid for a construction kit
Answer: something more than a finger joint box that you can assemble multiple ways.
Is it compulsory to design my own file in Vinyl cutting?
Answer: No, but you must acknowledge where you found it.
