After seeing the shingles from Raggs, I find them nice.

Sadly Raggs stopped producing and I was giving it a try to make something similar with the cutter.



 






Started with black paper, feeding to the cutter,

and made a drawing for it.





This fits nicely on a A4 size paper, I used slightly thicker paper than the normal printing paper.





This works fine

This was my first roof that I was doing.















For this one I was using white paper wat wat painted, as you can see the edges from the shingles are white.

Therefore I am using now black.

These are some buildings from a friend who used some of my shingles.















Not so bad for a piece of paper.

Very nice. Since Paper Creek, etc. quit making them, you might have a "ready market" if you want to produce some.

Can your cutter make things from very thin (1/64 or so) plywood or maybe basswood?

never tried thin plywood, but i think it wouldn,t work with this machine
i believe there are bigger cutters who can do that.

no plans to go comercial with this
if there is somebody who wants to give it a try, i am willing to sent the drawing for the silouette
it,s a small file, can be sent by email
