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.
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?
