    Germanic Font

    I have a TrueTypeFont Bloskschrift fur Flugzeuge I don't know where I got it. Do a Google Search for "Bloskschrift fur Flugzeuge Font" there are several listings.
  2. If you go to the Silhouette web site, they have a chart that shows the various features included in each version of the software. It is the same software with additional features enabled depending upon which Upgrade you purchase. Silhouette America - Software Features Comparison Chart
  3. I have 813 and 810, while I'm working on my first canopy mask I'm noticing that the adhesive on the 813 is a bit stickier and 813 seems to be a little stiffer.
  4. Second pass on the right and left parts of the windscreen portion. It looks pretty good, I just need the hands to be steadier for applying the masks. On to the next parts.
  5. Thanks Max. I thought about that too, but being a retired engineer........... I thought I'd try to make it harder. 🤪
  6. Okay, well, it seems that perhaps Limits needs to be set in the AutoCAD file and the Import Settings in Studio need to be set to Centered and the two check boxes set to off. I'm not sure about the check boxes but I turned them off and it appears to come in at the proper scale. I also appears that the dxf file needs to be imported into the Library but I'll try a bit more o that too. I had also tried importing the dxf file into AI and then exporting an svg file from AI and that seemed to work properly. Note, I have a CS6 copy of AI for reference. The mask for
  7. Okay.... Well, so far it doesn't look like dxf is opened/imported to scale. It started out smaller and I had to scale it up, which doesn't sound good. I'll have to do some research.
  8. Does anyone have any 'words of wisdom' about creating canopy masks? I do have AutoCAD to use and calipers.
  9. Sounds like you're probably looking at some of the same silhouette groups on FB that I am. I was wondering the same thing. Since I couldn't find a replacement auto blade for my Cameo 4, I did purchase what they're all calling a ratchet blade as a backup. It is manually adjusted for depth.
  10. I've been using water based paint for the majority of what I'm working on. I've not actually gotten to paint anything yet with the mask. I cut the ID letters for the tail of a 1/48 "Dave" and placed them on the aircraft but I've not had time to actually paint. I had gotten some 813 last summer just to see what the material is like. I've also bought some 810 and some Artool UltraMask since I got my Cameo 4. To me, the 810 and the Ultramask just 'feel' better to the touch. And I don't see any reason not to use them with water based paint. I don't know why 813 is for water based paint and 810 for
  11. Okay, I seem to have figured out something about the bluetooth connection after contacting Silhouette Support. Evidently the Cameo 4 senses that a USB cable is plugged into the cutter (even if the other end is not connected to a computer) and the bluetooth doesn't work. I received an email from a support person who suggested a number of things and also pointed to a website that works through finding out exactly which version of bluetooth is actually on the computer. While reading through that gent's email I was thinking that I've already done all the scenarios but I'd w
  12. I found the same thing. Only 813 on Amazon but I ordered some 810 from craftcuttersupply and some Ultramask from coastairbrush. I hadn't seem the recommendations about difference in paint usage. I do sort of 'feel' like 810 and Ultramask are better just from cutting and 'feel'.
  13. I've been a long time off and on modeler when family, time, and situations allowed. We retired, moved from PA to TN (grand kids) and trying to find a lot of time to model both in plastic and electronic. http://www.military-meshes.com/forum/showthread.php?7529-Lockheed-(Vega)-PV-1-Ventura&p=88257#post88257 I have a Cameo 4 (early Christmas present) that I'm in the process of figuring out. The first masks that I've created are ID letters on the tail of a 1/48 "Dave". The next step is to actually use them. 😅😅 Dave
  14. Rather unfortunate that there isn't a way to weld the endpoints together. I've been learning this. Dave
  15. To answer my question about Artool Hobby Mask, it is adhesive backed clear material only, there is not carrier to be able to use it in a cutter. (I purchased some.) It is probably just fine for masking canopies.
