Great start Terry. Just go in an play around with the circles a little in the open areas. You have to do this on most designs. I little adjustment and you will be good to go.

I'm with Matt, Terry! Great start!! Really great! I was happy to see it! Especially after watching and reading some many of these rhinestone posts from how far back did we start reading them Terry? And God bless you, diving in. I still feel like I am waiting for the right thing... which I think has arrived. What you are using. It seems to fit the bill. One of these new programs. And get a different cutter. I can't be bothered with my old Graphtec. Too much to do to get it all set up bc of that driver. Can be done... but by someone with more drive/energy than me to do it. :P

If you tweek this design, will you weigh in on how hard it was or wasn't to manipulate? Thanks alot, Terry. As always a pleasure. I love your posts. I always smile when I read them lol.

Sorry, Kelly, I was rushing and not thinking. I will be more attentive to the TSF rules in the future. This rhinestone decal thing just has me soooo excited. My apologies to all on TSF

Actualy, that was with a whole lot of tweaking. I just used Corel Draw and the contour function and Luis's macro, FDO2P. I wish I could get the DAS system but Santa Claus don't come to my house anymore. Does the DAS need a whole lot of tweaking when doing fills? I have funtime and will figure out how to get some images into it and try again sometime when Cathys resting easy again. Thanks for the encouragment and the well wishes. Ya'll are pretty great to have on my side.

Yes, Terry. There is still alot of tweaking the the DAS software as well. For a design like that it is never just going to fill perfect. It gets much quicker the more you do it though.

Slick,,
You are to funny,,,,
ok this is what i meant,,with terrys basketball if he leaves all lines straight,, he will end up with the unfilled areas, in the design,,,

so at some point you just need to get into that design and start to take some of those lines and start to place the dots so they form a curve,,, to fill in the blank areas,,
Most likely this will be done by hand moving the dots around untill you are comfortable with the spacing,,,,

All of the lines should flow,, and not make your eye stop,, on the design anywhere,,
When you look at it, you should see the basketball,,, then the outline, then the inside contour lines, and then the ball itself,,,,

When you are done and can stand back and see your design in that way,, you are done..

Terry,
This is a volleyball I'm working on right now. You might be able to see the vector outline in the background. I first did the outline including the lines to define the inside of the volleyball. Then I did a Raster fill just to have stones on there but I have moved every single one so far to put it where I want to. With rounded and arched designs, I tend to start on the outside and work with the curve as much as possible then work my way into the inside. Then when you get to a point where you can't do that, kind of scatter or space the stones so that there isn't a major gap in space.

Darn MMM. I was hoping you had pulled out that magic wand of yours and had figured out how to tweek the fill parameters in DAS or some other system so that it would do that for me. You know, DAS needs to give a seminar on playing with the various "functions" in those 3 fill types (random, hatch, island). I heard Craig mention in another webinar that they had "done some cool things with the fill patterns", but for the life of me, all I get are straight lines.

Oh well, on to the next design

What you need to do if you are using the smartcut pro, is when you use the placing tool, choose "user". This will bring up a second window. This is where you can make a lot more changes witht the fill and outline features. Unfortunately the users guide doesn't do a great job explaining this section, and as far as I know there are no webinars available. I'm going to be on vacation next week and I'm hoping to be able to write up some instructions/ tutorials using this feature. If you create a simple circle outline and then just start playing with the different settings you will see what I mean. It is confusing though. I will let everyone know when I have something ready.

I'm going to the NNEP Embroidery Mart South show here in Houston next Friday. DAS will be there. I'll ask them to demonstrate the fill feature and I'll post the info.
Any other questions you would like me to ask them?
