    VM Cut Node Edit

    i figured it ut... Move the nodes you wish to combine into the other other object... Click combine while the nodes are hightlighted. Select Weld Select Brake Curve and delete what you overlayed in the first step. I was way over thinking it...

    Have you tried to run it on Sign Blazer? What you need to try to do, is to eliminate if the issue is software or hardware. Can you run a test cut from the control panel on the machine?

    VM Cut Node Edit

    Hate to say this, but SignBlazer has robust and simple node-editing features, for free, and you can accomplish what you want in five minutes. The (hidden) archive for the program is here ----> http://www.uscuttersupport.com/downloads/Software/SignBlazer/signblazer_setup.exe Don't pull your hair out, barbershops are closed by Emergency Order~~~~

    VM Cut Node Edit

    Really, I'm just trying to join two letter I's together at the ends. A few times i've been able to weld and break curve but nothing close to consistent results. My bank is blocking a purchase to upgrade tonight, I have not clue why are are not authorizing it...It will be Monday until I can speak with them

    VM Cut Node Edit

    Without some more information it's hard for us to know what you want to do. Bear in mind the "Cut" version is the most basic and is limited as to what you can do. Here is a comparison chart so you can see if maybe it's just a limit in your version or not. https://www.uscutter.com/static/PDFs/VinylMaster_Comparison.pdf
  9. Awesome thank you. Now I understand and will look closely and adjust as needed. Thanks for the help!
  10. Can someone point me to a written or very clear video on how to use the edit node features? I've been working on this for a few nights and I can't make it do what I watch in the videos...Pulling my hair out TIA

  12. PM sent. First you must set your blade depth correctly. Don't use any directions that say use a credit card, that is false info. This is correct way to set your blade depth. To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing. You should just barely see and feel your blade tip out of the blade holder.
  13. Just got my new SC2 28" cutter and going through my learning curve. Previous cutter was a Roland SV12 which no longer works with Windows. Can someone explain what is meant by adjusting the "offset"? What does offset do? How to adjust offset and why would I need to? Thank you in advance.

    So after a conversation with them and a brand new cable they told me to make sure these settings are correct, and now it kind of works. When I go into the production manager and change the flow control to non the head goes down and just cuts lines back and forth. If I set it back to default XOn/XOff it does what it was doing (cutting a couple inches and locking up) and my unit is different so I can’t get into the cutter setup

    how would i do this ?

    Sorry, been out with the Wife for a bit... I modified my Diagram. Red Square C are choices to Select 'Solid View' , 'Color WireFrame' or 'WireFrame' Mode. Maybe try those to possibly solve the Color Fill issue you were experiencing? Also. if you are on a keyboard with a Number Pad, Hitting the "+" Key will Duplicate anything selected.

    I think.... i dont know why I had the same text in different colours on top of each other? When i sent it to the cutter there was multiples of the same text in different colours on the cut list. So i ungrouped them all and pulled each text to one side and deleted the ones underneath.....been a long day!

    Thanks, I have put some text on the design and i can change the colour on all the text except the last lot of text ive put on? Its strange i can click one lot of text and change colour then i type in some new and its in white, i can change the font, size add an outline but not change the colour?

    it could be that you were viewing it in a different mode. (ie. wire frame or node edit, etc)

    how would i do this ?

    Not sure what happened? I tried putting coloured text on the same design and the text stayed as an outline of the text, same with the outline tool? it would not let me put a colour around the text? So i saved it and then closed vinylmaster down, reopened it and open the save file and it all came up coloured in?

    how would i do this ?

    Hi thanks i got the first bit where it becomes a black flower in the vectorize, when i click accept it appears in the normal page as a outline. I then add a circle and i get a petal shape with a circle over the top? but an outline no colour. How do i colour each different part? I tried sending it to the cutter and it did come up with two different pieces to cut, the petal and the circle but how do i fill them in on the design page? thanks

    how would i do this ?

    In VinylMaster; When you Vector the Shape, be sure and tick the Boxes as shown Circled in Red. This will leave your new Vector Shape sitting squarely on top of your Bitmap Flower image. " Menu> Order> To Back " will leave you in with something similar to Figure A. Grab The Circle/ Ellipse Tool and create a Circle Directly over the center of your Flower. ( shown here in Yellow ) Select (click on) toy Raster (bitmap) Original Flower Line Drawing and Delete. This will leave you something like Figure B, here with Leaves Colored Yellow. You can then send to your Plotter and Cut each Color Separately. Pro Tip: If you would rather not Stack the 2 Layers (Single Layer Application), Trim the one layer against the other (or Punch with a Duplicate) and add a Welded Stroke for Overlap.

    how would i do this ?

    Node edit out the inside lines of the petals and core, then you'll be left with a single line drawing of the flower. That will leave you the outline that you're needing to send to the cutter. Were you going to try and do a 2-color decal under the app tape, or apply the petals, then just add the center manually? Because those are completely two different ways that you would app tape it.

    You are on the right track - you only need an outline. and a vector trace of object above will make both inside and outside lines. Or if your software allows- "fill" the petals to make a solid object. In your software, you should be able to edit the lines - the "nodes"-- and delete the lines you do not want. - chances are that you should just make a circle on ints own since you wan that a different color - and make one petal - copy-paste - it in the arrangement you want.
