    I'm going to move this to the signblazer part of the forum as that is where you really need help

    maybe slice n dice can chime in as our signblazer expert but seems like it should be a roland usb port - as I recall my signblazer showed several usb ports but it has been 12 years ago

    what port do you have selected in signblazer set up for your plotter? which plotter did you select also?

    roland gs 24

    Yea,the original problem was it just needed a restart after instalation,ive been trying to give the cut studio a fair shake,but I dont like it as well as signblazer

    I see years ago you had trouble setting this plotter up when you got it . . .did you select the right port in signblazer?

    roland gs 24

    so from your description I take it you installed the usb drivers for the plotter and tried the older roland drivers in signblazer? heck all the old rolands thru the gx-24 would use the old pnc-24 drivers.

  12. For all who do HTV work. I recently received a new 50yd roll of Siser Stretch White and the application instructions on the sticker have changed from 305 for 10-15 seconds to 320 for 20 seconds. I called the tech line and asked what was up. They said they have had too high of a percentage of lifting and decided they needed to make an adjustment to combat problems. So this is retroactive to all the stretch products and not a new adhesive. I know that the stretch line uses something different than the regular non-stretch as evident when trying to remove a missed weed item after install. Almost impossible to do on the stretch where you can just reheat the regular non-stretch and pluck it out. This will affect the workflow a little especially when working with a combination of stretch and non-stretch. Siser North America tech help suggested a middle of the road approach in these situations. Reduced dwell time at the higher temp. I know from personal testing that I did on my own that Siser of either variant can handle a lot more heat than they recommend. I did some tests clear up to 350 deg and did not see any visible signs of trouble other than just a touch of adhesive coming out along the edges that was visible if layered. At the time I was trying to determine if I could layer the Siser with some Stahls products that needed 320-330 degree temps. Color choices being what they are I needed one from Siser and one from stahls. it was the only way I could get the correct color schemes on a certain job. It layered successfully without issues. I am a little bummed out about the need for this change because it has been one of the best parts of the Siser Easyweed line that it was at the same time and temp for both of those two products keeping the workflow simple and I prefer the lower temps especially when pressing 100% poly products. Just wanted to get word out if no-one was paying attention to their application instructions (which I would ordinarily have not bothered looking either but it caught my eye accidentally).
  13. Very easy to fix that. Go into your cutter menu. Mine is in background settings on my FC. Go to: Initial Blade Control Position> Put it on the> OUTSIDE> Enter. That will put the "J" on the outside of the design.
  14. 3 years later.... i found this topic. so i'll reply with how i fixed it. (Adobe Illustrator CC2015 and CM3 on a CE6000-60 cutting on oracal 651) I was cutting tiles when i noticed the "J" cut was repeated. instead of having the cutter REPEAT the tile. i created a file in illustrator the same width as my vinyl, and repeated the tile in there. simple copy & paste, then alignment to adjust spacing. then i did a test print of the first row looking to see where the first cut started. sure enough, the first tile had the "J" cut, but the remaining (which is repeated in the file, NOT by the cutter) didnt have any "J" cuts. so i stopped the job, added a simple cut BEFORE the first tile. problem solved! so if you have something you want repeated and cut... repeat the object in a file instead of relying on the cutter to always align the cutter since the repeating is done in CM3. hope this explanation helps.

    Which RTape is this?

    I think his question is the other roll. What is it? Maybe look back at what you ordered and write it inside on future unmarked ones would be smart. I for one will pay more attention to my own rolls since I read this.
  16. IMO if you take reasonable efforts to determine that it's not out there (Skeeters instructions would qualify I would think, I am not an attorney though) you would have done due diligence in attempting to stay on the high road. If you get a Cease and Desist letter you'll know you missed something. That's my $0.02. I agree with darcshadow that most basic phrases are safe but there are works of word art that people put a basic phrase into beautiful design that would be infringement if you copied the design layout or even if it was derivative it would be technically breaking the letter of the law. If you have some shirt sayings ideas that are unique or a layout and look that is your own those are the best.

    Hi I have a really nice 715 model insta heat sealer and I wanted to sell it but I cant find any info on it anywhere!? Are they alot older machine and can anyone tell me approximately what I should ask for it. Everything works great on it. Thank you for any info! Randy S. 4074483959
  19. Copyright Go to the official website of the United States Copyright Office to use its online "Public Catalog Search" for works copyrighted after 1978. ... Check the results for the phrase you want. ... Search again using the "Keyword" search if the exact phrase you are looking for doesn't appear in the results.
  20. I think Wilson is thinking more about phrases rather than full up designs. For example, "Git er done", I believe is trademarked, so any use of it would be restricted, however something like "Gone Fishin'", which has been used in several designs and therefor might be considered copyrighted. However simple phrases and slogans can not be copyrighted so as long as the design is original and the phrase is not trademarked, you should be safe to proceed.

    Which RTape is this?

    if the little red text in the core of the top photo says 4075-RLA, then it should be a medium tack.
  22. The line is pretty much. if you didn't create it. It doesn't belong to you. If it is already out there, it is copyrighted. It belongs to someone else. Ask permission from the owner. You can do an online search in the trademark library and see what belongs to someone. You can search online and see if it is out there. Purchase a license from reliable vector stores. There are many online. You can use anything in the Public domain library. They are expired. Google Reverse image search is great for checking designs and who they belong to.
  23. So for all of you that have been around here for awhile... how do you, what procedures do you take to make sure you avoid copyright / trademark issues? I'm looking for more than just if you see it out there it's copyrighted and can't do it. If that's the case it seems like you wouldn't be able to make anything. I think the confusing part for some of us that are newer is what is the line and where does it get drawn. For example, I want to do custom T-shirts. I'm pretty sure with a little digging I could find every word, phrase or saying under the sun on a T-shirt somewhere. Where does that leave me? It's crystal clear that I can't use the Ford emblem or Mickey Mouse but what about a shirt that says "Blessed & Highly Favored" or "Mom's Time to Wine"? I'm certainly not trying to advocate for copyright/trademark infringement here but trying to understand this topic a little better and do things above the board.

    I've used the greenstar for blasting glass and it works well. So long as you don't hover over the vinyl it should work well enough. You have any sample pieces of stone you could test on?

    Newbie and clueless

    Thanks, "Good" is the key word. Going to stop on the way home from school and pick up a new 9volt battery and try again. Going off the message boards on how to do the 9 Volt Test. Hard to believe no you tube videos out there on how to do it. Plus will get home and call the left coast and see if I can get through to tech support. Thanks

    It's pretty much whether you use high tack or medium tack paper tape.
