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.
Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You
