Graphical Search

Once again I am complaining because the graphical search is missing. Last time I just overlooked the button, but now I don't think it is there at all. If anyone can somehow find a way to get the old search back it would be much appreciated.

Converting a design to basic lines?

Okay, here's the deal. I want to put this design on the blade of a knife I'm making (the design is the USNA class of 2013 ring crest). Before I can do that I need to have a stencil made of the design so I can etch it on the steel. But, the design is to complicated (all the shadowing and such). So I need to clean it up, get rid of shading, shadows, all that. How would anyone suggest I do that? I gifure I'll have to do some editing in a photo editing program, what program? And how do I do it?  Thanks for any help, I'm not a computer graphics person at all, so explain it like you would to your grandpa (no I'm not old, just not computer smart) Oldanvilyoungsmith

I'm not sure now if this is even possible after surfing a whole day and haven't found a thing. What I want to do is to somehow change the shapes of electrodes of what the black graphicks of oldschool lcd games are made of. Are there some sort of chemicals whitch can erase old graphics and something to draw the new ones connected to old connections. Or are they cut out some magnetic transparency film. Well, if somebody has a clue where I could find few hints to get started I would be grateful.

Graphic Design table on a budget

So after seeing all the drafting table instructables and multitouch displays I think Ive decided to make a hybrid with a desk that has an inlayed box holding the multitouch display that can rise up and out of table at an angle similar to the drafting tables found on here. I would then use a wall mounted monitor to free up space on desk for old school pencil drawing. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas or issues they could think of right off the bat to help me in the brainstorming process. Any help is appreciated. Thanks! Happy making!

My computer won't boot fully after installing new graphics driver

A long time ago I messed with something on my computer, and after that it can't display resolutions about 1024x768. It used to be able to display a higher resolution. (It is a inbuilt GPU, not a seperate card) I tried searching for a new driver, but after I install it, and reboot (BTW: I am using Windows XP), it just ''cycles'', it will boot up to the Windows XP loading screen, then it just reboots, and goes back to where you can select safe mode etc. Then it just tries to do it again. When i choose boot with last known good configuration, it will boot properly, but that doesn't solve my original problem. Any ideas on how I can update the driver without that happening? Thanks, Thermoelectric!

What software do i need to make a 2D-pattern out off a 3D-model?

 what i want to do is a pattern of my "Ranger boots", say i need to measure the whole thing, make a 3D-model of it and then need the software to make planar layers out of it. aim is to get a pattern of my boots, cut a design into the pattern, print it on adhesive foil, put the foil on the boots/cover the boots and spray it. After removin the foil again, i should have the design on the boots; the foil is simply the negative of the design. (I thought bout "solid works" (engineering software) to design my boots, but i dunno much bout softwares' availability, so i'm askin.)

Surely there's an app...? (Software recommendations, please)

So, I have this new HP Sprout that I totally wasn't expecting. It's got a large touchscreen and this cool projector-scanner-touchmat combo that should be really useful for... something. The first thing I actively want is to be able to create files for my laser cutter (running Lasercut5.3), just by drawing with fingertips or stylus.  In my head, I see a version of Inkscape that works on the touchmat, but only responds to the stylus (to save weird lines from knuckles, elbows...).  I have Inkscape downloaded, but it won't work with the touchmat. Second, it would be nice to start learning how to create are actually 3d already, that could then become lasercut-able or 3d printable. Again, it would be nice to use the full potential of the machine, so what software would you recommend? Third... what?  have you got any cool ideas? On top of all this is the consideration of cost.  Free would be nice - if you are a software developer, I don't mind having a go with Beta products (I'm known for breaking code, so if it can survive me...).
