If you are new to Inkscape, you might confuse about how to draw triangle since the are no tools named “triangle tool” in Inkscape. Basically there are two ways to draw a triangle using inkscape.
Triangle objects are necessary to draw a lot of drawing especially mechanical or mathematical stuff. That’s why I will just share this to you to make you able to draw it faster.
How to Draw Triangle in inkscape using Polygon Tool
You can draw a triangle using polygon tool. This is the most simple way. Just Click the polygon tool Icon in the toolbar. Or simply press (*) on your keyboard.
In the property bar, Choose Regular Polygon and Set the number of corners to 3.
You can start drawing the triangle just like drawing rectangle or ellipse.
The thing is.. the triangle drawn is not automatically stand up straightly so you have to rotate it. Using a Guide line might help you doing that.
The plus side of using polygon tool to draw triangle is that you are able to set the round corner. You can increase the value of Rounded in the property bar;
Drawing Triangle Using Pen tool
The second way to draw triangle in inskcape is using pen tool (Shift+F6). There are many kind of triangle you can draw using Pen tool since the tool is so flexible.
To draw good and perfectly straight lines, it is strongly recommended to activate the Page Grid (#).
Always click on grid intersection to make the nodes in good position, each time your cursor pass the grid intersection it will ask you if you want to put a node in there.
You can now draw any triangle you want to draw just by clicking on the grid intersection. Like drawn below;
Deactivate the grid once you done drawing.
