Hello Everyone. I have tried many times unsuccessfully to use Gemcad to reverse engineer the Kiev Triangle design by Jerry Newman which is available on this site. Has anyone entered the design in to Gemcad successfully and if so do you have a Gemcad file of this design that you could share please? I followed the cutting instructions (pavilion first) but even though I have gone close to getting it I am missing the point somewhere and can’t work out how to do it successfully. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Thank you for your reply Alan. I was looking for a downloadable file to be able to load in to Gem Ray to render a 3 D image of the design but when I clicked on the GEM tab it opened up a script but not a downloadable file.
I am using Microsoft Edge browser running on the latest updated version of Windows 10 PRO. I can download the pdf with no problems but when I try to download the Gemcad file I see a screen full of letters and symbols.
The only thing I’ve done with Edge is play with it for a few minutes, then uninstall it. 🙂
There’s probably an option setting that determines how the browser handles file extensions. If you can find it, set the .gem extension directly to GemCad. This is convenient because you can view the file in GemCad, then choose to save it wherever you want from GemCad itself.
The other thing you probably want to do is set Windows to open .gem files with GemCad (or Gem Cut Studio, if you have it). If you haven’t done this before, you can find instructions on line, such as how-to-reset-file-associations-in-windows-10
No guarantees, since I don’t know much about Edge.
