Update: You can also find more paths, custom utilities and see what other Sisyphus users are doing on our subreddit: r/SisyphusIndustries/. In particular, a beta version of cutting edge software that can help you convert existing images so sand paths is explained on this post.
We have a basic utility that will create a path from your single line drawing (it must be one continuous path). It’s in beta and will be improved in the coming months. We have tested it with Adobe Illustrator and Inkscape (which is free) but not extensively yet.
- Start a new drawing in Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape
- Select the pencil tool
- Draw your path – it can be as long as you’d like but must be one continuous line (multiple lines work in some cases if they start and end and the same point). You can also join multiple lines by select path > join in the object menu
- Save as – select svg in the drop down menu
- Connect to your table with a browser
- Go to the settings tab
- Select ‘Upload SVG to Sisyphus’
- When the upload is complete you should see the path details and you can now play your path and add it your playlists
- The utility will extend the ends of your path to the outside or center if they’re not already at one of those locations. This may have an undesirable effect, so it’s best draw your path so it ends and finished at the outside or center.
- If you play your path in single track play and it begins on the outside the Sisyphus will home, then make an arc to the outside. You can remedy this by creating a playlist the begins with erase then plays your custom path and followed again by erase. Make sure to play this sequentially (not shuffled).
