I'm working my way backwards through the hoards, hoping to see how many figures I can make before I get burned out. I didn't make it very far. I'm on Hoard 102, and the cutfiles in the hoard zip file don't seem to line up properly with the figures. I'm currently working on fixing that for my own purposes - extracting the images, lining them up with the reg marks in the cutfiles, then sliding the cutlines around to where they should be. Before I go recommending that squirmydad updates the hoard file with new cutfiles, I wanted to see if anyone else has used the cutfiles successfully.
In America/Canada default paper size seems to be US letter which is 8.5" x 11" or 215.9mm x 279.4mmm. In the rest of the world(ish) Default paper size is A4 which is 210.0mm x 297.0mm. Not much of a difference, but enough to throw out a printer or cutter.
A discussion of the differences, and it's relevance to our international community can be found here. A4 vs US letter

mahotsukai - I thought about that, given that the PDF pages are some dimensions that might be designed to fit on either A4 or US Letter. But the distance from registration mark to cutline has to be constant, or else the cutter could never work. That's what I'm seeing with the cutfiles - if I align the page to the registration marks, the cutlines are all off by quite a bit.
I double-checked to make sure the cutlines stay anchored when changing page size, so I'm not inclined to think that was the issue.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

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

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

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