Hello @Spencerlancs and welcome :)

 

Here are a couple of Plugins for you to try to bend something:


Liquify

 

Polar Transformation

 

Rectangle to Archimedean Spiral

 

And here is how to download Plugins:

thanks Pixey, I downloaded shape 3d and pasted it into my effects folder but it hasn't appeared - but now I notice it was from 2007 - I'll try your suggestions thank you.

I'm only after something that gives me the ability to pull something out of shape any way I please 😀

Hi again, I'm not after anything spectacular, just to pull something out shape a bit - to make a straight thing into a slightly bent thing.  Pixey that liquify link doesn't work for some reason oops

 

the other two plug in effects are too extreme for me

I've found liquify on a search !!!!!

 

I've fixed that link now :) 

 

Do you know that the Line/Curve Tool :CurveTypeBezier: can be used to draw a line which can be bent, by pulling the nubs?

Okay try this Plugin, but it would be better without the white background:

I sometimes also use @MadJik's the Tube Oblique plugin found  in Effects/Distort. Not sure if it makes a random wavy line since I have only used it to make an even curve.

another problem is how to get smooth lines like a vector

 

A great smoothing Plugin is called AA's Assistant:  dpy's Plugin Pack (2014-05-04) - Plugin Packs - paint.net Forum (getpaint.net)

just made this.  For some reason, even though I make the image transparent, when I transfer it to my cutting machine it makes the background white again.  Not your problem of course.  It just means I have to delete the background all over again

Spencerlancs  You may want to check on the  file extension of your drawing . Paint.net is automatedly a .pdn and if you save it as a .jpg or you cutter changes it into a .jpg then the transparency will be removed and replaced by white.   There you have my entire fount of knowledge, or drip if you prefer.

  Age is only  a number --in my case a Really BIG number, but there you have it

When the prefect paint.net image is created, I will still be wondering "How they Do that?"- sigh☺️
