  • 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.

          Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

          Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

          Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
          Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
