Quick comments - first, the files look GREAT. I love the ability to turn off the cutlines, and toggle the registration marks. Nicely done.
While it's a nice touch to ship older and newer cutfiles, it's not really necessary, since they're really identical save for the registration mark setting. It's not too unreasonable to default to the newer format - most people with an older machine are probably familiar enough with the process to know what to do.
Just my personal preference, but I like to see score lines and cutlines colored differently. My preference is score lines being blue to match the color they will be when you set the cut settings, and cutlines red. But, FDG standards are somewhat the inverse, and plenty of people don't care one bit.
page 03-04.studio3 has an extra cutline that overlaps a scoreline at the top of the page...
I'm psyched to see this with cutfiles. I didn't have a chance to try out the new cameo tonight - I had to actually redesign my desk so that it would fit - I've got in *under* my printer... Maybe this weekend I'll have time...
Almost done building the cloister model. It's really impressive - more amazing in person than in the pictures! Gak I can't wait to see more of what you guys produce! Really wonderful.
EDIT: I had mentioned the one ramp I built didn't come out great. It turns out I put in one piece upside-down, which explains the poor fit on both the top and bottom. Doh! Subsequent pieces came out perfect!

Everything tried to get in my way (I had to redesign my desk... I had to flush my printer tanks...) but it is done!
Here's one pic. I posted a couple others at my blog, though it is pretty evident I'm not a photographer...
What a great model. I have to admit I had a hard time assembling some parts, but perseverance pays off in the end. Edge. A lot. Dry-fit the pieces, figure out where there is likely to be a gap, or a fold sticking out, or two pieces that may not align perfectly. It's worth it.
I own a whole bunch of buildings, but NOTHING like this. Two thumbs up!
I'm not much of photographer either as you can see. I'll have to agree with mproteau on his suggestions was a fairly challenging build. Sorry about the quality of the photo I was being attacked by a hoard of house cats jumping up on my table while trying to take a pictures, believe it or not this was the best out of 5 pictures.
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
