I have some interesting 4 bot cast to work with. I am thinking the Last of the Monikins style falls.

The one inch falls do indeed look good. Wish i had more than one set of those so i could do the same.

Great look on the thin falls. I think I have a couple volunteers waiting in my Alex drawers... :)

Not sure why you would want to cut it into 1 part (do nothing) or 3 parts with each one being 2/3 of an inch wide? Unless you are thinking about some horizontal slicing. Cutting one into two 1 inch wide falls would still keep the viable use for a 2inch fall, but also lets you make a narrow 1 inch falls or a double height 1inch falls which could see some reason for existing and would likely be able to match up with many existing tiles. Having a 1inch fall drop into a 2in wide water body would be perfectly fine, as would a narrowing of the stream above the falls as well.

My question would be what would be the best way to actually slice that waterfall tile and not mar it up or otherwise crack it. Part of me thinks a hot knife might not be a bad solution, even if it melts a bit around the cut, it is supposed to be water and nonregular anyway.

I used a heavy/duty blade razor knife. I was afraid that the band saw would remove too much material.

I am not sure if I will cut one of the 1X1s . I want to experiment with the best way for me to make a 6X3 water fall.
Those 1inch falls look rather nice and are seriously tempting me to get one of mine under the knife. One thing that hurts immerision when building a scene is having all the special features all being the same size. You could have a couple of small streams/falls (1inch) dropping into a pound and then that pond pouring its outflow into the old waterfall (2inch) and create a more organic looking cascade.

Bout the same as usual. ;)
You are missing a disorganized unfocused mess. Be glad :!: The good news is Nate is working toward a solution.When the concept models are presented to the artist they will shape up well. He will work on the concept waterfall models again next time.

The 6.66 delivery date will depend on how the factory recovers Shipping may start in June and may continue as late as September.
I missed it live and was watching it later last night. Clearly their first attempt at putting together a home stream. I applaud them for working to keep it going and not just dropping it altogether. I suspect it also gives some structure and focus to the day when they have to figure all the logistics out. Have not finished part 2 of the stream yet (later today).
The sound was much better. Now only if Nate would stop looking down and turning away from the camera so I could read his lips :roll:
