  • 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.

          SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

          Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

          Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

          Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
