I have a confession.
Out of the many aspects of this hobby I absolutely love, some of which are pretty niche in nature, there’s one prevalent practice that I abhor: cutting styrene.
I could say I don’t know why this is problematic for me, but I do.
I’m a perfectionist to a fault. I need my parts to be identical, my cuts to be perfectly straight- the same measurements every. Single. Time. I will not accept less; it’s just built into me- and it’s not only within the bounds of the hobby.
The amount of time and materials I go through to get the perfect cut and fit is incredibly frustrating. Even with lots of practice, and I’ve had a lot of practice, it’s just not something I enjoy.
An employee rewards program has allowed me to obtain a brand new Cricut Maker and Knife Blade attachment at a very reasonable cost.
I’ve had a few chances to use it, and I am absolutely thrilled with its performance. This machine will be an absolute game-changer for me, and I can’t wait to explore its abilities in more depth.
Of course, I will blog about my process and findings as I put this new machine to use on my workbench.
