Re: Edge Lit Signs

I have done several edge lite clock, rotating gear signs this past year. While I like plexi glass, it does collect dust easily. I made a weave pattern clock for my wifes kitchen and I found a clock at the Dollar store for less than five dollars. I took the glass lens out of it and used that as the l...

Re: Start point

Thanks! That explains it. I had never had it change it so many times on a
minor edit.

Re: LED Edge Lit Clocks

I'll try the glow in the dark paint. Being able to see
the time is also important.
Thanks for the reply!

LED Edge Lit Clocks

I've made several edge lit clocks. Each one turns out better. One ongoing problem I have is the hands on the clock face does not show up real well. Even with all the different colors the leds can produce the hands still are hard to see. I have black, white, gold, and silver hands with all the same r...

Organizing Tool Paths

I have done several searches but still have a quick question;
In using layers can one keep the tool paths with the respective
layers.
It sure would help if you did not have such a lengthy list of
tool paths.
Thanks for any help!!

Re: Croping a Photo

I tried a couple of attempts on some scrap.
Did not turn out. Funny how my mind thinks of
things that I can not do. LOL
Thanks for the suggestions.

Re: Croping a Photo

Thanks everyone. I'll try the trace idea. I had thought of that
but thought it could be done in one of the photo programs.
Thanks Gerry for the tip on .png

Re: Croping a Photo

I'm not sure what your showing me, but the problem is when
I go to engrave the face it engraves a square with the face in
it. I just want the face. Is that a mask?
Hope I'm explaining this right.
Thanks for your replies!!

However I can not for the life of me get the white background trimmed from the outside of the cats face. I know it can be done, but I'm stumped. I have ...
