Click here to view or download it I quickly pulled this together for anyone having trouble understanding how to properly use ShapeMaker so all the drawing 'modes' render correctly. Step 1: I used the 'Cubic Bezier' tool with 'Snap to Grid' turned on and 'Linked with previous Line' turned off. I toggle between Zoom 10x and 5x. I always place my first node in 10x on the flattest part of the shape. I then draw the rest in 5X and zoom back up to 10X before I place the last line. I place my final node (1) square away from the beginning node and use 'Close Contiguous Paths' button to complete the outline. That's how you get the 'closed line' symbol shown in the Path List. Step 2: I chose this as my 2nd line because it completely intersects the outline shape. An example of why this line is cloned: Step 3: Step 4: I choose to do the center flower next, as it creates a great 'anchor' point for all the other lines. Step 5: Step 6: Step 7: This may be an on-going tutorial. As questions are asked, I will add more images to explain. Hope this helps everyone new to the ShapeMaker plugin! 8 5 Quote My Art Gallery | My Shape Packs | ShapeMaker Mini Tut | Air Bubble Stained Glass Chrome Text with Reflections | Porcelain Text w/ Variegated Coloring | Realistic Knit PatternOpalescent Stained Glass | Frosted Snowman Cookie | Leather Texture | Plastic Text | Silk Embroidery Visit my Personal Website "Never, ever lose your sense of humor - you'll live longer" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
