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
Here is my take on Josh's robot
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
I love your work! you make really wonderful things!
You are amazing! I guess we can't ever stop learning new things and be surprised by it all :)
Thanks for sharing Susan!
