  • Meonapumpkin?

    I read the review of this program in the latest issue of SSWS and went out and spent my $19.95. Now I wish I had waited. The program would be great if it would allow you to print the image right before it insists it be put on a pumpkin. I get a really great looking pattern and there is no way to print it. It also saves the image only in something called .pmk and it cannot be opened in any other program. As the article says, you have to print the image after it is automatically formatted for a pumpkin with a bunch of dots connecting, not what you designed, but their "corrected" version of your image.

    Me on a Pumpkin

    Hi Old Mooner, I purchased the Me on a Pumpkin software too.
    I think you should contact Bob Wilson of Carving Technologies. You could reach him on the comments section of the meonapumpkin site.
    He is a great guy and I am sure if you explain your situation he will do his best to make things right for you.
    I got the updated Version 2 of the software and I love it.
    You can change the paper orientaion to work the pattern out better. The dots can be toggled and so can the lines.
    Sned him an email I know he will help you out.

      Example

      I just did this pattern in around 10 minutes with the Version 2 of the software.

      I turned the dots off on the output. and did a print preview. The picture is a screen capture of the image.

      I could have spent more time but I wanted to show how effective it is

        I did talk to Bob and I received Version 2 as a download. It is a much better program--from the standpoint of the scroller--and I am in the process of making some patterns. It seems to be working very well. I recommend it to those who have yet to try making their own patterns. It is not "easy" but it is far better than doing it on your own and gives you an excellent starting point for most projects.

          Celtic knot-shamrock cross
          by Ennobee
          My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

          Hi Jim.
          glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

          Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

          Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
          by jim_mex
          I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
