I found some very old Scroll saw patterns and though I would share them with you.
I am expecting my Machine this Tuesday, and will be trying this pattern as a gift for a friend. These are no longer copyrighted.

There are 2 Files one is the original artwork and the other is a Grey scale PNG file.
Haven't a clue how these will look as I don't have a working version of the Designer Software yet. Haven't figured out why you have to register the software yet as Far as I can tell it can only be used with the carvewright machine.

Anyways I have a few of these and will post them as I get them cleaned up.
I hope these will be of value to someone.
The Original Pattern is 5 megs in size so, it may take a while to download.

I impoted it into the Desiner software and then did a little work to it in the pattern editor - I set it up as a scroll saw cut out (using the 1/16th cutting bit and some 1/8th baltic birch ply). file/zuzmcwmmzhw/old ship.mpc

This looks great! Now how do I take the various and numerous scroll saw patterns that I have and convert them to line drawings like this for engraving on my CW? Sounds simple for someone like yourself but I'm still learning!

Thanks in advance!!!

Question Very Happy

Hey woodchipsltd
Has anyone responded to your question?? Doesn't look like it. So here goes from what I have learned and tried.
1. Scan in your scroll patterns in to your computer giving each one a name that you will know when you see it and I would give it the extention of .JPG. Reason for this is that takes less drive space and less deterioration for editing useses.
2. Use a picture editing program (I use MGI PhotoSuite 8.05). Now ensure that your blacks are totally black and no light grays and so on the same is true for the whites. Remember the way that CW works is that total black is left alone unless you set it for another depth and total white is for the cut in at the set depth. lighter shades vary the cut depth. I enlarge my images to max at times to check for any color diferances because 1 to 2 gray dots will actually show up in the final cut. Plus you may have to experement on just how thick the lines need to be to give you the exact pattern cut you are after.
3. Then you will need to import the JPG into your CW program and the instructions are in the help section of the software on how to do that.

I hope that this helps you and others. It does take alot of time to ensure that it is what you want but remember you will be pleased with the end product and if it were easy anyone could do it, then where would the bragging rights be. What a Face
