  • Pattern copies

    I am sure this has been covered at some time. JGR sends our master copy printed in red. I had always been making copies in black & white. On one of the last copy runs, I did not notice the copier was set on auto detect for color. I got 10 copies in red, so today was the 1st time cutting in red. I have to say it was really nice following a red line. Everything seemed to be a bit brighter and more pleasant to cut. Depending on the pattern I will be making a lot more in red.
    They are a little more expensive to copy in color, but on certain patterns it will be worth it.
    Just thought I would pass this info on to anyone new to intarsia.

    Yep, red patterns and reading glasses work for me.

      I just started with intarsia and haven't tried red out yet, but I sure will on my next piece. I do often lose sight of the blade with black lines even though I'm using a magnifier light. Thanks for the reminder.

        Oh, yeah... I bought a color multi-function printer/copier just for that. Can't beat the red lines.

          Just Wondering...

          Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

          With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

          I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

          Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

          I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

          If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

          Hi Linda, great find...I think.

          Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
