Have a question?
Thanks. I'll try that plugin.
@Philip, @gas Inkscape is an option - we have a plugin that was developed by one of our users that's available at https://github.com/Line-us/Inkscape-Plugin - Haven't written the instructions on how to install yet but there's help on the Inkscape site if you don't want to wait.
@Tom We've looked at this and unfortunately one to the conclusion that it would be a lot of work and our time will be better spent on adding new features - in particular for sharing drawings. I totally understand it's a bit frustrating to have unused screen, but given the amount of work we can't justify it.
Inkscape maybe? But I find it clunky and havnet been able to export a gcode for my laser. There probably is another option and I'd be interested to know too.
Does anyone has any experience converting SVG to GCode for Line-us? Any tools people could recommend?
When the fill screen version coming to Galaxy s9
@Emi Hi - we've just put a very simple Processing example on our Programming page - https://github.com/Line-us/Line-us-Programming/tree/master/Processing/HelloWorld. Or click on the Programming link on line-us.com It's a fairly direct port of the Python example. Let us know how you get on!
Hi - just wondering when the developer support will be released for Processing?
@Alexander No problem - we’ll get Line-us on its way to you on Monday.
Hi - I noticed I neglected to fill out the survey. I have found and finished entering the information requested and submitted today. Can you confirm you received the needed information to finalize and ship my order?
Any news on the app update for galaxys and iphone
@Beth Sorry to hear that - I'll drop you an email to let you know the plan.
Hi there, I see that the two machine pledges are having some difficulty getting delivered. Just wanted to add my voice to that to make sure I’m getting updates regarding those deliveries as well. Backer #661, Beth
@Sander Thanks very much for the kind comments! Great to hear your Line-us arrived and you're having fun with it.
What a great support from Line-us!! This is one of the best campaigns I've backed. Really love the Line-us, playing with it for a couple of days now and have some great fun. I was really surprised about the size of it...so small!
@Lisa Hi Lisa, yes I have your email. As I mentioned to @Timothy the two machines pledges seem to be taking longer to get through, but I'll get back to you and everyone that has emailed from the US early next week.
I don’t have mine yet either (US, a two machine pledge). Emailed your help address and got no response.
@Timothy Apologies for not getting back to you sooner. The two machine rewards do seem to be taking some time to get to people, but are getting through slowly. It could be that they are getting more attention from the Customs people due to the higher value and larger packaging. I'll get back to you early next week though.
I have not received my product. I have emailed several times and have not received a response. Someone needs to check the emails. The email@example.com is a waste of time.
also is there any way to import an illustrator file?
sorry I was just wondering how do I pinpoint exactly where the pen starts?
@Tom At the moment we're working on publishing and Scratch will be next. We haven't planned yet beyond that yet as we want to take some time to see how people are using the app before making any decisions.
Can you reinvite me to please only have the selfie and doodles
Any update when the app will fit galaxy s8 and iPhone X
Thank you very much.
@Virginia That's great - good to hear you're enjoying Line-us. We've re-invited you so you should see the envelope again.
Hi, I just woke up my Line-us. Everything is soo nice. Well done!
I have one little question.
I saw the books « doodles » and « selfies », I accepted « share » and then rejected « share » thinking it’ll just close them but they disappeared… Is there a way to access them again? Sorry I have been a bit awkward with this. Thank you in advance for your reply.
Hi - just hooked it up to my Pixel 2. It works well! I wanted to send you some feedback but your firstname.lastname@example.org email rejects my mail just like @KS's. Do you have a better email for us to use?
By the way check project 5 on this https://youtu.be/PD-tPfSrG2g a CD drive plotter if you cant afford Line-us ;-)
Hi, I haven't received mine yet, USA backer 449. I've tried mailing you but your mail server rejects my message saying I'm a spammer. :(
@Tom Good to hear!
@John Thanks - really appreciate the feedback and good to hear you're enjoying Line-us
Thanks Gernot,. I have the selfie one and one other but forgot the name. I'm enjoying looking at others drawings
Just a quick word to say THANK YOU! This is such a fun tool. Truly enjoying seeing a personality emerge as Line-us draws each picture. Great job on this project!
@Tom Karbowski just shared mine with you if thats what you are asking for?
No one able to share books with me?
@Jim Your Line-us is on its way to you - it was shipped in the second batch so should be with you soon.
@Irfan Your Line-us is on its way to you. Unfortunately we don't have tracking for your shipment but fingers crossed it will be with you very soon.
@Irfan Your Line-us is on its way to you. Unfortunately we don't have tracking for your shipment but hopefully it will get to you soon.
@Jeff - Great to hear that you've got your Line-us. Pens are very much a personal choice, I like the Pigma pens, but gel rollerballs are nice (the Muji ones work well). Some people are using much thicker pens though, even Sharpies. My favourite at the moment is a Rotring Isograph, but you have to put up with ink and cleaning.
A stylus is definitely worth looking at. Even the very cheap ones with the big fat ends are a step up from a finger. The Adonit ones seem to work well on some phones but on others there is a big offset between the tip and where it draws. I've just ordered a Wacom one to see how that is.
Will I received a tracking number when Line-us ships?
I did not receive mine yet . I did not get any info on shipment tracking .creators kindly let me know shipping details .
Someone share some of the public books with me,

I received mine in Maryland yesterday and have been successful with Line-us though I have to say I don’t think the App is very intuitive. I still need to play around with it as I don’t think I have discovered all of its features. I’ve already had to calibrate, but that was easy and the drawings now turn out much better. I’ve been using a Micron pen but feel there are better alternatives. What does Line-us recommend? Do you also have a drawing stylus to recommend because I don’t like finger drawing on my phone.
@Tom - it's fine to gently fold the arm away by hand once you've turned the power off.
@Emile - Sorry Line-us is tanking a while to get to you. It might be worth checking with your local post office to see if they have it (in some cases that try to deliver but don't leave a card). We have had a few that have been a little slow, if you don't locate perhaps we could leave it a couple more days and if it still doesn't arrive drop us an email at email@example.com
How do I get the arm to fold back in when I'm done. Feel like I'm gonna break something forceing it back my self
Can someone share the public books with me. I only have 2

Not yet received... Backer 380 from Brussels...
@Robert Sorry you haven't got yours yet. Some have made it to the US quite quickly but I'd expect them to arrive some time this week, assuming no customs delays of course. In the meantime though you can download the app from line-us.com/downloads and start doodling!
