I noticed this happening when WWG changed their line styles. If you set a line style to be a dashed line and set its cut mode to perforate, it is going to perforate along the dashed line, not the solid line. I found that this makes smaller perforations, but it also had the tendency for whatever algorithm optimizes the movement of the cutter to hop around between two perforation lines that were somewhat close to each other.
That was my experience, at least.
I don't think I have seen that problem for perf lines where the line style was an actual solid line.

I think I might go with a Circut or something when my Portrait eventually dies. Im Okay with v3 for the most part these days, but In the past when I have had issues with the software, their tech support basically tells me there are no problems, and everything is working correctly. Then they fix the problems in a later patch. Its kind of insulting.
I didn't think Cricut made a cutter that has an optical scanner. As far as I know, the only real option is a Silhouette. Has that changed? Which model are you thinking about that can replace a Silhouette?
Apparently , the new Cricut Explore series has a design and print ability like the Silhouette. Looks like they finally got smart and added an optical scanner, the registration marks look similar to Silhouette Cameo ones in this video:

Well, I didn't do any reasearch or anything on the matter. If Silhouette is the only way to go, then so be it. Im just not happy with the company, and would pick something else if I had the option. Im not going to get anything until my portrait stops working anyway, and who knows when that will be.
That's what I thought, it will put pressure on Silhouette to make sure their software is up to par.. Both companies will have to be at the top of their game, hardware and software wise otherwise they'll lose business...
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

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.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
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
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
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?
