Tiny Tudor Village Set

The design work is all done now, there are eight buildings in this set.

My old machine lost adequate cutting pressure this week so I will start using the new cutting machine I bought a while back.  I decided instead of switching my mental gears from design mode to technical machine mode it would be best if I just got all the designs finished so I could then focus on learning to use the new machine.  While I am always thinking about designs creating the models in CAD is a rhythmic dance of steps and if I take a break from it then I have to get back into the mode to be proficient. Plus memorizing the function steps on a new machine is best done by focusing all my attention on it.

I am still on track for having some of the new kits for sale by November 1st.

Hello Karin,
I hope getting to know your new machine will be easy and painless.
Big hug,

Thanks for talking about getting back in he rhythm of things. I walked into my studio after a few weeks and I had to get acclimated all over again. I didn't know where anything was etc. Good to know others experience this too.

Giac, new machines that are driven by software never seem to be painless.

The learning curve is about as much fun as going to the dentist. But I am dragging my partner into the fun. He wants to use it for some things too so we will catch each others potential bloopers hopefully before they happen. He has lots of techy toys of his own, 3D printer, laser cutter, CNC milling machine.
