I'm with you Clif--but  the thought of having to cut 63 windows for a factory that will set against a wall as a backround building-------- This danged thing cuts them out--while I'm daydreaming (in 2D)--All the same.. Waiting for replacement cutters.

I guess that there is a definite advantage to technology. It does take the monotony out of the repetitive tasks. I do a lot with jigs for those. As with my ore boat build, each of the 16 hatches has 110 pieces and like the 16 feet of hand soldered railing. The 3d printing interests me the most but alas being on the fixed or broken income that is a long way off.

Clif, you are doing great without it! Nothing beats real handiwork anyway.

Well, the carbide knifes are the way to go--for certain! Went through a half dozen "regular" knifes before ordering the carbide ones. Thar was a year ago. and the first carbide one I put in the machine still cuts clean!

Now - I haven't used the Silhouette for 6 or 7 months. I make a drawing, scan it and  turn on the Curio, First thing, it says that it has a software update. Now I have seen this non- threatening  bit often enough that I ought to realize that an "improvement" to Mr Gates means that something that worked fine, and I used on occasion . has been completely changed to accommodate. something that I can't think of using--even if I knew what it was. So I have to slog along, to figure how the simple stuff works now. Some day I'll post a photo of a IPad that I got angry enough at to put a 38 caliber hole through it.  But I am straying from the path. I click the Curio screen, and let it do it's thing. Then I convert the JPEG scan to whever the Curio likes (EXE?) and I'm all set to go. get to the point that the program is in the cutting box, hit CUT and it instantly says "cutting finished" all it does is run the head across the paper, while it says finished, with no cutting at all. I have tried changing every setting that I can find today with no effect on what happens. Any Idea what I am doing wrong? Even showed it the dead IPad before dinner, thought that might make an impression on it, but evidently it doesn't scare easily. Cant find anything addressing this problem on search function for the RM Web monster article

Any ideas before I ask the question over there?

Herb

Hi Herb :old dude:



I don't think that's what Apple meant by 'taking a screen-shot' ! :shocked:



Friend of mine was annoyed by doing his paper work ...

... so added some 12-gauge 'ventilation holes' in his filing cabinet !!



Understandable !

But I generally DON'T approve of shooting indoors ! ...

... especially when I'm standing there & have to listen to it !

Very bad for the hearing.



:mex:

Technology is a wonderful thing, I applaud those who can make it work for them. However, I'm afraid that my future in this hobby centers around Xacto knives and needle files and a ball-peen hammer. Carry on, this is fascinating!

Whoa-- Barb isn't gonna like that if she hears it.
Some form of appeasement might be called for.

Even the renowned Victorian detective S. Holmes decorated his wall with an "E.R. " pattern by emptying his revolver....

Next thing that I'm going to try is to see if it will cut one of the previous patterns that it did with no problems.

But right now, household chores need my fine touch--never realized that they took so much time out of the week.
