# Creating a Pattern as an Inkscape Extension: Part 4

Continuation of Part 3 STEP 8: ADD CONTROL POINTS AND CREATE THE CURVES Curves are stored in SVG files as bezier curves. Bezier curves in Tau Meta Tau Physica are defined with 4 points: a start point, two control points and

Continuation of Part 2 STEP 6: CREATE THE SVG OBJECTS The formulas we’ve written calculate the x,y coordinates for each point. They don’t create the SVG elements that we see on the Inkscape canvas. If we wrap each of these formulas

Continuation of Part 1 Here is the pattern with the new points added: STEP 4: RENAME THE POINTS The next step is to convert each point into a naming convention. The pattern pieces are single capital letters. The Front Bodice will
