View Full Version : File types...
11-03-2006, 08:43 PM
I really don't know where to post this question, so I guess here is as good as anywhere. I have a Wishblade, and I also have Inkscape and Robomaster software. I have a friend with Pazzles (and she is a *VERY* new user). She would like some of my files, but they are in GSD format. How do I go about sharing them with her?
What file format does each cutter use? (Is there a table I missed?) Where can I find information on how to convert back and forth from each format?
Thanks for any help!

To convert the GSD file to a Pazzles, you can do it either way:
1. Print the cutlines of your GSD file out, scan it back into your computer as a jpg, then she can open it up and trace it in WPC.
2. Take a "screen shot" of your page (CTRL+PRINT SCREEN). Save this screen shot as a jpg, then she again, can open it up and trace it in her Pazzles software.
It is much easier for WINPC users to make a GSD file, and much harder for GSD files to be converted into WINPC.
There is one other possiblity, and that is if you have the program, Adobe Acrobat (this is not the Acrobat Reader, this is the FULL Acrobat program.) Then the files can be "printed" to the Acrobat Distiller, opened in Acrobat, saved as an EPS. This EPS file can then be opened in WPC.
Her best bet would be to join one of the Pazzles groups, they would have more detailed instructions on how to do this. Julie Flanagan wrote many of these tutorials. I have WinPC program, but I just use it to convert my Illustrator files to WinPC, so do very little in that program!
