Kalle Hyvönen of DGK Electronics has created a new Inkscape extension that might be handy for all of us robot builders:
I developed an extension for Inkscape which can create optical rotary encoder discs in any size/number of segments. It currently supports single and two-track (quadrature) encoders but I’m going to add support for gray encoded discs as well.

Hey guys, thanks for the interest in my project! Extension now includes gray encoder support http://www.dgkelectronics.com/inkscape-optical-rotary-encoder-disc-generator-added-gray-encoder-support/
I’ll add support for single-track gray encoders next.
