First Cricut part
Posted by Don Stauffer on Thursday, March 02, 2017 9:45 AM

Made my first Cricut part Tuesday with help from my daughter.  It is a bridge support for my 144 scale WW1 destroyer.  I cut it from IBM punch card stock. It is not a keeper, my CAD work was not the best and girders are not at proper angles, but proves the machine will do it. I am next going to try that same part from thin styrene.  Also work on a better art work.

I have been considering a silouette Cameo 3 primarily to cut masks but also to take a stab at cutting parts out of styrene sheet.  The cameo comes with design software which is the main reason I am leaning towards it.

If you don't mind what was your reasoning to go with the cricut?

Have you cut any masks yet and what has been your experience?

What have you been using for software?

Thank you.

I went with the cricut because my local Menards had a very good sale on them.

I have been working on actual styrene parts now, since I found the machines can cut thin styrene and wood.  I find that even more exciting than doing the masks.  I will get back to those later.

No photos of the styrene pieces yet.  Set aside my scratch model to work on a kit for a competition.  Was close to success, so hope I will have nice parts soon after I finish that kit.
