I don’t know about you but there have been times when I wished I could double, triple, or even quadruple the size of a pattern or photo without a bunch of hassle. What if you could take a picture of a chair, import it into a software program and have that program spit you out a full sized print of it.
Matthais Wandel of woodgears.ca has developed software that can do just that. He calls it his ”Big Print” software and it is available to us.
A while back I posted a scroll saw project I did of a stallion’s head. I thought that this would be a great piece to experiment with using my new 3D pantograph. There was only one problem, I needed to double the size of the original design. Enter Matthais Wandel’s Big Print software. Rather than a 6 1/2” tall pattern I now had a 13” tall pattern. Just what I needed. This particular pattern printed on 4 pages but the overlaid grid lines help to align one page to another.
I think it is worth checking out!! I know I will be using it again soon.
