  1. Great info about the embossing engraving. I have asked here a couple of times in the past about a similar attachment/head by Chomas for engraving with the Silhouette. Glad to see that the embossing tool by Silhouette performs like this! Bgman, is this the "fine" version? Do you know if it fits a Cameo 3 machine? I know you mentioned using it on a Portrait. It appears to be a good solution for brickwork and engraving (on styrene) work. EDIT: I think that based on the color, that this is the "stippling" tool by Silhouette and not the embossing one right?
  2. I am also using Inkscape here and it can directly drive the Cameo 3 (at least on Linux, using extensions).
  3. Hi all, Sorry for asking again but i am looking for an engraving tip for the Cameo 3. Is the Chomas one the one i should be looking for? As you can understand, so far i need to re-scribe / clean any engraved lines that i have created using the normal blade (as expected since it is meant for cutting and not engraving) when i create items with engraved details (panel lines, brickwork etc...). I suppose with an engraving tip i ll sort out these issues? Another question. If i use such a tip to engrave items in a 1st pass, can i replace the tip with the normal blade, without removing (u
  4. Quick update, I finished work on a few foreground trees. An Elm, a coconut Palm tree and a Washingtonian Palm tree. I hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by!
  5. John great work there! Cheers for the link!!! I ll take a detailed look! David very nice clip! I had Bugs in mind (when choosing Cucamonga & Azusa) when he mentioned Cucamonga at some point in a cartoon, while trying to get somewhere.
  6. John thank you once more for the kind feedback! Glad to hear that you will be moving over, the weather can be good here. Also glad to hear that you modelled the SP, i see that you moved to modelling German prototypes right? Splendid work by the way!
  7. Wendell and Allegheny1600 (John), thank you very much for the kind words! Wendell: True that the Pasadena subdivision is very interesting. You mentioned a few of the reasons that made me choose it as a subject, ie urban railroading crossing the Route 66 at Colorado boulevard (which is my major scene in the layout having 10' on the layout modelling the Boulevard across three modules), and having several famous passenger trains on the line. Another important factor were the manageable size freight trains on the line, their routes and switching involved. So in choosing the LA area (which is b
  8. Very nice work on painting/weathering the tracks Jack! Looking forward to seeing more.
  9. Time for an update at the LA, Pasadena RR. The time has come for some scenery at last! I have been working on the South Pasadena modules where a brewery and a furniture factory (and a warehouse) will be placed. Between them there is a bridge (road) scene that i sort of focused. While working on this i did finish all the ground work and almost all foliage for the modules. I hope you like the work, and many thanks in advance for your time! Yannis Scratchbuilt bridge (with Wills girder plates added on the sides) Piers made out of parts from a Vollmer truss bridge and some Wi
  10. Admirable work sir! Well done. On a different note, i am looking into getting an engraving tip for my cameo 3. Any suggestions? I have seen mentions of a Chomas replacement tip. Is that the one to go for? As you can understand i need to re-scribe / clean any lines that i have created using the normal blade (as expected since it is meant for cutting and not engraving) when i create items with engraved details (panel lines etc...). I suppose with an engraving tip i ll sort out these issues? Another question. If i use such a tip to engrave items in a 1st pass, can i replace the tip w/
  11. Thank you for the reply. Did you set a specific number for the extrusion width? Slic3r PE has 0.45mm for example in the 0.1mm layer height setting (with a 0.4mm nozzle)
  12. Excellent work there! I was wondering (in post #12), did you print the storefront flat on the build-plate? Did you print it on the Prusa (at 0.15 layer height?)
  13. Great work Londontram, What kind of adhesive did you use for the laminations? Very very clean construction without any warping!
  14. Impressive prints with respect to quality and very informative discussion! Redpiperbob, did i read correctly that the furniture, windows, walls and roof sections were printed on a Prusa mk2? I am referring to posts #57 and #59.
  15. Revisiting the comparison between the old/new apps for the Z21, i see that the older version is using more screen area for buttons / throttle in comparison to the new one. The newer one is much better at describing function icons when you set up locomotives. I am using the older version by the way mainly for the reason of screen coverage. It would be nice if they implemented somehow Zimo decoder update capability into the app (or the Z21 updater app).
