Laser Photo Wizard Birdhouse Generator
The Box Generator proved to be a very useful and fun option. It was decieded to add other generators. The first one was a birdhouse generator.
This generator can create 3 different kinds of birdhouses, Traditional, Flatroof and Tapered Bottom.
|Traditional||Flat Roof||Tapered Bottom|
How to Use the Birdhouse Generator
Click on the Generator icon on the Home Screen.
Then Select Birdhouse Generator from the popup window.
Select the kind of birdhouse you want and the dimensions from the Birdhouse Generator.
Click the Create Bird House button. That will generate the birdhouse files and show you
a not to scale image of the Top, Bottom, Side and Front.
Here are the box files generated:
Import the files into the Wizard using the load image dialog, To open the dialog, click on the effects icon,
then select the text/image tab. Clicking add image will bring up the load image dialog.
The Load Image Dialog
Load a file from the birdhouse generator. The files are located at:
Documents/Green Screen Wizard/BirdHouseOutput/YouName where your name is the name you gave your box in the box dialog.
Once loaded select vectors.
It takes some time to draw, but the final image will show as purple lines.
You can then save or print the final image.
Traditional - Birdhouse that looks like a house
Flat Roof - Flat roof birdhouse that is designed to attach to post
Tapered Bottom - Birdhouse to be hung from a tree
Dimensions and Thickness
Height, Width and Depth, ect are in inches
Thickness is the thickness of the material, so 1/4 inch material is .25, 1/8 material is .125
The gap size is how wide the connector is. If you make it the same size as the depth, then the connector will be perfectly square.
**Note if hole or perch diameter is 0 is will not be drawn.
**Note on a flat roof birdhouse the height is from the top slope of the roof, and extra 1.5 inches is added to mount the house. The flat roof does not have a cleanout door, hinge the roof for cleanout
*** Note the image dpi must match the engraving dpi of the final image for the thicknesses to work properly.
