Christmas present from my daughter. She gave me a wood carving pattern book by Lora Irish. http://www.carvingpatterns.com/101_pattern_book.htm
This is a link to the full site.
http://www.carvingpatterns.com/

The book is for hand carving and burning but I did a scan of a couple of the patterns to see what they looked like in the pattern editor and found the look like they just might be carveable. the patterns are both in outline and drawing format.

This is a greenman from the drawing


greenman from the outline


Sorry I can not post any ptns of mpc file do to copywright issues but if one is interested you can down load patterns collections for the site or buy any of the books.

I assume by scan you mean with the probe since you also said you put it into pattern editor. Since I do not have those and am not familiar with it I have to ask the following: How do you get a scanned image with the probe with height detail from a flat piece of paper? It would seem to me that the probe would do the entire scan 100% at the same elevation level. May seem to be a dumb question and assumption but when you do not know you ask.

Regards,

Ken

Ken,

Not a dumb question at all!! Looking back at my post I did not make it very clear on what I did..

I have a flat bed scanner (3 in 1 copier/scan/printer) for my computer. I copied the pages by scanning them and then saved as a jpg file.

If you do not have the pattern editor you could probably do the same editing I did in what ever image/photo editing software you have.

Hope that clears it up for you.. and thanks for asking!!

Thanks, that makes much more sense. I have a flat bed scanner and tons of editing software so I might give it a try. I also have some of ms Irishs books as I also do some hand carving.

Ken,

That sounds great. I had been on that site before my daughter gave me the book and really liked some of the patterns they have. Now with the book I just might even take up some hand carving. Looks like it could be very fun to do.

When you scan your patterns make sure you do it in a high resolution to get the best results.. Good luck.
