    Default Powder Keg Productions?

    Hello... wondering who Powder Keg Productions is in the pattern depot? I purchased the M1A1 Abrams tank pattern, but I would like a version with a shorter radio antenna. The current length requires me to scale it down just for it. I would appreciate a different version, thanks!

    Looks right, thanks. Although it would be nice to have the one I paid $20 for fixed... only used it once.

    You could just mask off the top of the antenna.

    That's true, but if you are using a feather, then it creates a square spot in the feather that you then have to carve by hand, and for some reason I don't get it perfect... or at least not as perfect as I want it lol.

    Okay. Here is another example of masking using a group, a zero depth carve region and a carve region with "Clip Carving: Exclusive" applied. It's sort of a reverse mask by masking out everything and then cutting holes through the mask. Thank you Bergerud!

    Here are the steps:
    1. Place the pattern
    2. Create a group that does not include the pattern. This will define the carve regions that the "Clip" will be applied to.
    3. In the group, place a carve region around the entire pattern with zero depth and clip carving set to "Exclusive". This is the mask.
    4. In the group, create another carve region around the part of the pattern that you want to show through the mask with the depth the same as the pattern. This will create a hole in the mask.

    You can get creative with the "hole" by using the line drawing tools to create a closed region instead of the rectangle.
