  1. Interesting way of putting it. Ive worked out that I cant do it in Cura - its just that in design spark, you cant edit the files so I would basically have to re draw them 4 times.
  2. Hi guys, So i came across this image and was blown away at the detail - does anyone know how this would have been achieved? I cant imagine someone actually designing it. Is there a software that can trace or scan an image? I ask as I have been asked to make embossers for businesses and would love to be able to do it as effectivley, accurately and quickly as possible. Thanks
  3. So, I would need to adjust my initial model (lets say its a 3") for the 3.5", 4" and 4.5"? Eugh, that sounds like a lot of work - considering I have hundreds of designs :/
  4. Sorry - Im not sure how to explain myself. Yes, I would like to be able to scale the overall width and height of a design without it effecting the wall thickness and brim (the bottom of the cutter). I use DesignSpark - is it at all possible to do it in that program?
  5. Thanks - to be honest im not fussed about the engraver - I would never use it! Is there a particular Ultimaker you would recommend? Ive looked at them but know very little about them aside from knowing that they are popular. Cheers
  6. Hey guys, I make cookie cutters and design them a certain size however I offer them in generally 4 different sizes (3". 3.5", 4" and 4.5"). The problem im having is when I scale the original size up or down, I occasionally find holes in my top edge and my bottom edge shrinks or expands. Is there a way to basically change the ratio as for as scaling (the height always remains the same). Ive attached pics as an example. The cross was printed to the scale I created it however the tomato was printed scaled down by about 1" (the height was adjusted after scaling). You can see the rim of th
  7. Hey guys , Im after a new machine - I currently have the Cocoon Create - the machine sold through Aldi stores earlier this year. Its actually a great machine however I do need another one. Based on my criteria which was: - minimum bed of 20 x20 - heated bed - max AU$1000 - fast - very good quality prints - the Cocoon prints really well for a budget machine. I was told that this was a good machine - can anyone offer any words of advice in this model? http://www.ebay.com/itm/322167079023?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Whilst I wish I had more money
  8. Great, thanks for the tip Ill be sure to check it out
  9. Hey there, I really need some advice please!! I use Design Spark to draw all my prints. I love the interface, its very user friendly and I get great results. The issue I have is that I design for other people and once I have saved the design, I cannot edit it if my customer wants to make changes. Im going crazy and wasting a heck of a lot of time re-drawing the designs. So, is there a really simple, very easy program I can use to edit my stl or rsdoc? I have played with Meshmixer and Blender but its all too complex for me! Thanking you all Cheers
  10. Thanks for your replies guys & girls I dont use glue and I dont have a glass bed, but yes, it is the side thats facing the bed. There are no obvious holes or gauges in my bed surface so im not sure what is going on.
  11. Hey there, Anyone know whats causing this pitting problem? Its driving me crazy!! TIA
  12. Eeek!! Is there no one that can help me out here?? Please??
  13. Hello again, Can I please ask for help with this one...Ive been asked to make the following design into a cutter. Im down with the cutters themselves now (as in the outside cutter) however this has internal framework that is used to make an impression in the cookie. Ive tried everything that my brain can muster up to make this work however I am really struggling to work out how to achieve this. Ive attached the design and also an example of how it is to look. I use Designspark but also have Blender and Meshmixer if thats going to help my cause. Thanks again
  14. Thank you! My bed was set at 63 (PLA) but ive reduced that to 60 and re adjusted the bed. So far so good
