So as I'm in the process of getting ready for SaltCon, I have realized the monster cut files on the website are created using spline/arc lines making them extreemly slow. This is the same problem I had with the Elf Alliance cut files. I have only checked the Dungeon Monsters and the Demons but I'm sure there are others too. Does anyone have a different version of the GSD files?
All I can say is that I noticed the same, the cutter being slow, noisy and producing a good vibe throughout the table. I do not have any experience with creating cut files, though, so I can't really help out there. I need to familiarize myself with the process at some point, but its low on my to-do-list right now.

This is why I never use the trace feature. All my gsd's are done by hand. There are times when doing a spline is appropriate, but when you do the auto trace you get hundreds of extra points, some stacked right on top of each other.
Some of the armor grid GSD's have so many nodes that it just crashes my Robomaster program.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
