    After looking over Pedros site and seeing he is using Sketchup, I downloaded a copy.
    Is anyone else out there using Sketchup...

    O.K. Carl, no wisecracks, just a few questions. What is it? What all does it do? What do you think about it?

      The commercial version is rather pricey but there's a free lightweight (and legitimate ! ) version here.

      The folks over on the UK Workshop forum have a whole section dedicated to its use, if anyone's interested.

        Sketchup is a 3D rendering program.
        It allows manipulation on all dimensions.
        I am pretty sure Pedro must use the full version.
        He is meticulous with his work and wouldn't settle for anything less than perfect. That is a trait I could use!

          I downloaded Sketchup and played with it, when I desided to learn how use it, it said my time had run out. Couldn't open it again, so I deleted it.

            Bob,
            Did you down load the free version?
            The free version Google Sketchup doesn't expire and has everything a person needs, unless your into major designing and such.

              Paul,
              Now I'm not sure what I downloaded.
              Does anybody have the link to the free one?

                I am not sure how useful it will be for making patterns but it is fun to play with

                    I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                    My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                    None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                    What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                    The bags seem easier on the surface.
                    But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                    Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
