I don't believe MasterCAM accepts it. I don't know, there might be a patch or I could probably convert it. Shoot me one of those snowpenguin, your file was all corrupted when you sent it to me.

Stupid Inkscape. :wtf:

EDIT: SENT.

Well I added some more Bondo (to all sides) then sanded. It appears I need one more little patch of Bondo just to fill little gaps here and there. After that's done I'mg going to pain it flat black. Then give you guys some pictures :D

Oh yeah... you can follow me on Twitter if you want to get instant updates.

@64M320N3
I've sent you a couple emails and some pms but haven't gotten a reply form you. If I can't get it done soon i'm going to have to use somebody local.

64whatever has been gone for awhile, mysteriously disappeared. Both me and Colline had been talking to him when suddenly no more replies came. Real life calls :P

Aren't we real world customers willing to PAY him for his services? I guess I have to find someone that's more dependable... which means converting my files to corel format and sending them to a town that's a bit aways from me (not too far). :wtf:

The bondo is still wet... it's really cold here so I brought it in the house and am risking the stench of bondo permeating our habitat :roll:

Eh, real life catches up with people and they have to go to it, nothing bad about that, who knows, maybe he's in the hospital, or a family member died, or something to that effect.

In any case... Updates!

After adding a couple layers of bondo it's smooth...

I then shook the paint can vigorously...

Then applied paint!

After painting it I can see I need more bondo :facepalm:
There are still some rough spots. But I don't think I can work on it tomorrow. I need to work on the N64. Cart slot relocation time :wtf:

Doesn't take that long to build, ben took breaks from it.

Use the edit button instead of double posting.

HMF, nice work, I think it would look pretty slick if you put clearcoat over it to give it a shine.

No, I did not. It might be finished by christmastime, maybe, and I'm unsure of whether or not I will be selling it.

Depends how bad it looks, really. I'd probably do it just to make a more professional looking product.
