Sitting down to write week 16's adventure story. I sit here wondering what i have been up too. (besides all the pop lock robots i made (shown during the week)). (and still not being well with Whooping cough)
Well I spent a lot of the time watching videos of how too's about the make the cut software. having working with inkscape for over 7 years I never really thought about learning mtc I thought I could do it all in inkscape and save as svg's .
But after watching I have learnt that they both work really well together and it was a good thing
that I am learning mtc now. I found that I had lots to watch and each one I have watched has giving me a little more insight to it. One other thing I did do after last weeks catchup is I relized that I had a book with cd of patterns that the same person who made the robot paterns i have been playing with over the past few weeks. So i got it out and tweaked one of the patterns to be a cut file as well. Below is the result. I used the pen adapter and embossing adapter (to score) and then cut. Adding a bit of colour here and there to give a special look.
Now even though it was not as easy as getting the pattern putting in MTC and cutting on the Zing. I did have to take it into inkscape and tweak it to work with MTC .
BUT IT WAS ALL WORTH IT
The time spent setting it all up in inkscape was
well worth the effort coming up with three files
a draw file, score file and then cut file made
my life soo much easier when it came to putting
the model together .
Don't be scared to patterns to cut on your Zing as it is well worth
the time spent tweaking it will open up a whole new
world for your Zinging
The ZING is here to stay!!
I am off to
COUGH explore some more.
If you live in Australia and New Zealand
and wondering where you can get a KNK Zing
SKAT KAT is the place to find them
