problems with adobe illustrator

Maybe someone faced with a similar problem. Worked with the file in Adobe Illustrator. In the process, wanted once again to save the file, put it on save, display a message about lack of memory, it was found that the working memory of 400 MB, although confident 20-15 GB is always there. Something went wrong. Closed a few programs opened and again put the file on save. actually tab of the file looked as if the file was successfully saved, closed it and Illustrator and set the computer to restart. After a reboot the file is not opened. Displayed a sign which read: "Cant open the illustration. Could not complete the requested operation" and when you click ok a blank space. Tell me , what do I do in this situation ?

Modeling 2D Life-Size Files on the Computer

Hey community! I have a slight dilemma! So say I want to make my own laser cut frame, and I have paper designs, how do I transfer my paper designs to a computer? What (free :) program can I use to make a lifesize model? Like for instance, if I have a 4x4" square in the program when I send it to print after it's printed it's exactly 4x4". Also, do I need to do anything extra for sending it to a laser cutter? Will Adobe Illustrator work? Thanks!

Strange format numbers in Illustratore CC "123 123 pt"? Answered

Given: Illustrator CC, worked fine, and suddenly crashed formats numbers in the input fields. It became something about 123 123 pt. i.e. there is a space instead of commas when entering numbers. The factory default settings had reset, in the regional settings like everything is in order, ID is operating normally. Only Illustrator behaves odd. Maybe i need to delete some configuration files? All advices are welcome...

How do I separate one of a group of Vector Graphics on a page of many?

I downloaded a page of free vector images. In Illustrator, they are all combined together into one group. If I "ungroup" them, each image is then separated into it's many parts. For example, if one of the images is a flower made up of lots of separate pieces, how do I get just those flower pieces combined so I can separate the flower? Thanks.

Need someone to etch and cut a piece of aluminum for me

Hi all, I have a DIY boombox project made from a train case where I need a badge made to cover up a "mistake". I can provide an Adobe Illustrator, EPS, DWG, or DXF for the logo and shape of the badge. The finished piece will be 3.25" wide by 1.5" tall. As much as I'd like to do this on my own, I'm not keen on working with acid and don't have the time or work to build my own CNC or laser cutter. I will be happy to pay for time and materials as long as it's reasonable. Also, I'm in Northeast Ohio, if that matters to anyone. Thanks!

Arduino PCB Board Layouts

I thought I might share some the circuit board layouts (Top and bottom) of several Arduino boards that I've created. They could be used to etch your own board or just used to compare sizes. I created them from the eagle files provided from the Arduino website and exported each layer in monochrome with help from this Instructable. Automating Eagle export and preparing it for printing by truhlik_fredy To create your own PCB layout on eagle i found this Instructable was the most helpful Turn your EAGLE schematic into a PCB by westfw Download Eagle for free here The File is available as an Adobe Illustrator file and as a png

Laser power for thin aluminum? Answered

Here's a question for you laser cnc builders out there, how much laser wattage would you need to cut really thin aluminum? Like, only slightly thicker than grocery store aluminum foil. Very thin. This cnc machine would be used to cut custom theatrical gobos (GOes Before Optics) at home. Normally, when we need a new gobo design, we build one in Adobe Illustrator and send off the design to Rosco or some other professional cutting company. But this can get pricy, and can take up to a week, so if one gets messed up during tech week (they do sometimes) we have to cut a new one out by hand. The results are not spectacular. The gobo doesn't have to be mechanically strong, and they don't warp inside of a 525w fixture due to the cool beam. You could in fact use foil, but that's a little too thin to be useful. Any guidance would be appreciated.
