Kopykake projector cookies, pls share - Page 8

post #106 of 189
I am going to invest in one also-probably the 1000, as the idea of dealing with shadows would not make me happy! This is my thought on the base vs. clamp decision: The base could be positioned anywhere on the work surface, which means the cake could be, too. But the clamp would have to be at the edge of the table, right? I don't think that would be as convient when trying to pipe-I would like the cake more in front of me. I think the base model would be better. BUT I have never used one, so I am not sure if this thinking is correct or not!

I'm getting the base model because my kitchen counters won't accommodate a clamp properly.

You won't regret it!

I don't know if you saw this or not, but one time when I was on their site this scratch off thing appeared and you take the mouse and "scratch off" and get a discount code. Mine was 3%. Unfortunately I didn't write down the code and it hasn't popped up again, so when I go to order I'm going to ask them about that. Did you see any sort of pop up scratch thing like that when you ordered?

I live in southern CA and I received mine in a week. I must say it was bigger than I thought and takes a little playing with both the rod to get the size you need and the lens. There is just one page of directions for putting it together and what end of the lens to insert for enlarging or reducing the image size. Hope this helps.

Are there any video tutorials for the K1000 unit?

You can enlarge as much as you want in Word. Instead of clicking on the little arrow to get the list of sizes, just click on the numbers to turn blue, then key in any size. I often go to 350 or 400 when creating appliques. HTH

oh wow lcubed82
I didn't know that about word. Thanks
post #118 of 189
I didn't know that either! Duh; seems so simple.
The problem i had was fitting the words into the viewbox to go across. Do you guys just write and then open the viewbox to pull the paper for the rest of the words? I was trying to write happy birthday across a 9x13 inch cake and then the name underneath but it didnt fit. I think i'm not understanding how to work this projector, and i havent had much time to play with it. That's why i'd love to see some picture tutorial of how someone does a diagram or message from sizing, to printing, to the projector. That'd be great!

OMG _ i use WORD on a daily basis at work and home, and have used computers extensively for years....and do i feel stupid that I never knew you could do that in WORD....even more stupidly - I have been printing out the letters I need in the largest number available and then trying to enlarge them more on my copier - dumb, dumb, dumb - not to mention lots of cursing and pulling out my hair......thank you cake central for teaching me more than just cakes! LOL

I got my Kopykake 1000 last week for $120.00!! I found one on Craigslist, and had to drive an hour and a half to get it, but it was SO worth it! I've already done a bunch of cookies, and I'm excited to check it out on cakes, too. I've wanted one forever, but could never justify the cost... But for $120.00, how could I afford *not* to buy it?!

I've just been outlining in royal directly on to the cookie and then flooding it. Haven't really had any issues with getting in the way of myself as far as shadows go. It. Is. Awesome. icon_biggrin.gif
