    Weeding and registration marks

    Yes add them manually. Click on your finished design and then click Objects and you can add them.
  4. Ok thanks but the registration marks option appears just before cutting and it appears on a pop up window which is not editable? Or do you mean add them to your design manually before the cut screen?

    Weeding and registration marks

    Not sure about the weed lines, haven't tried it. As for the registration marks, once you add them you can size them like art. Or click some where else to unselect them. Once you do that you can double click individual ones and move them like any other art. Hope that helps

    Why does this happen?

    Hi thanks I did have another look before I posted the file and did find a small dot to top right hand corner, I deleted it and thought that must me it? But the box didnt get any smaller. I've changed colour and magnified it to max but can not find anymore?

    Why does this happen?

    When I open the file I only have the black layer with the large box around it, pic 1. In wireframe I can see a faint second image but cannot select it unless I click Edit, Select All. Then I can size the 2 together but the large box is still around them which I don't understand. That usually only happens if there is something in that area to cut. I tried Arranging them and pushing the black image to the back and to the front and that does nothing. I also selected all and changed colors a couple times to see if there was something hidden to the right causing the size box to be so large, nothing. Maybe you could post your art file so we can see what we are working with unless one of the gurus can help you more from this.
  8. Hi guys, I just picked up a Model SC Plotter and I'm having some issues with connecting to it with the computer. I'm using a HP 15dy1045nr and Sure Cuts A Lot Pro 3. The problem is when I connect everything and click on test connection SCAL 3 just freezes up and doesn't work anymore. Any of you experienced this and have a fix? Any other programs I can use?

    Weeding SMALL letters

    Make extra dots and use them to replace any you mess up in the design.

    Quality company support

    My plotter is 30 years old. It's a workhorse and it cuts nearly everyday. Tracks straight over 20' cuts and I love it. Well, had a breakdown this week. One of the pinch wheels disintegrated and ruined a few feet of material. Called the company and they not only have spare wheels for sale but are also now in the town over from me. Bought both wheels so I don't have to worry. $50 a pop but wow, having it in stock is amazing and no ship time.
  13. I am posting this due to a request from a viewer on how to do contour cutting with the Prismcut and Vinylmaster. I did not research before hand and just did this off the cuft to see if I could figure it out with good results to make it as real world as possible. I hope you guys find this useful. https://youtu.be/QuhW05U4JBU

    First impressions of the Prismcut P28

    I am actually uploading a video right now on the contour cutting. Someone on Youtube asked me about this, just don't remember who. Stay tuned as that will be up within an hour or so

    First impressions of the Prismcut P28

    this machine is plenty capable. I really feel like most of my issues are software related. Here and there I will see some scratching on my vinyl, but again I cannot say for certain what causes it. Otherwise, I have been cutting a ton on this and learning more and more each time.

    First Cut

    Congrats on your purchase. Yea you need to bend those roller ears a little so they roll properly. Other than that, the stand is pretty sturdy, but IMHO should have been a cheaper option for what it is.
  17. A two question post.. If I want more weeding lines on my piece not just the ones Vinyl Master generates can I just put lines across my piece and then weld it and would it just cut the extra weed marks and not the ones passing through my work? Also when I use registration marks they are always too wide and waste a lot of vinyl? Is there anyway of moving them? Or do people just add a few stars as registration marks on their work and not use the generated ones?

    it would probably be more helpful if you're willing to share you file.

    Weeding SMALL letters

    do tell: cutter? software? font? font size? make sure you set the blade depth properly. make sure you slow the blade speed down. a 60* also helps for tiny text and intricate designs.

    Reflective recommendation

    Mahalo. Yes, when I tell some of the customers, that reflective can start 10x the cost (to get it here), they flinch and think I'm lying. I tell them that I only have a limited amount of reflective because it's ridiculously cost prohibitive for me to tie up money in stuff people don't aren't willing to pay for. I've been looking at the 5500 or 5700 series, but everywhere - inventory is iffy. I don't think the state laws will take into consideration that material will be difficult to source during a pandemic. I've seen other brands, and know that they are not going to pay for the more pricey stuff. This will be an interesting next couple of weeks to see who has what, and how much it's going to cost to get to me. Keep your fingers crossed!

    Weeding SMALL letters

    You don't mention which software or cutter. I use weed lines feature on small text from my cutting software. I also use sewing needles with a pin cushion, for weeding my designs.

    Reflective recommendation

    for me I have always used engineering grade but got lucky and most of it came from lost shipment auctions so my big rolls are 3m. I have some green that cannot be cut on a plotter I use for backgrounds and have a lot of it but shipping to your rock will be very expensive even in smaller amounts because of how thick the material is - - - That one is green - not sure what colors you are looking for. I would think any 3m or oracal engineering grade would be good - will be very very pricy but customer has to understand that is just the cost of the proper material when quoting the job.

    Weeding SMALL letters

    Hi there, I have a small business where I sell baby onesies with literary quotes. Therefore, I use a typewriter font. My biggest BIGGEST issue is when I am weeding, I often can't get the DOTS to the lower case I out of the vinyl, and then my iron-on decal is ruined. Does anyone have any tricks for those little bitty dots?? thanks!
  26. dpi refers to a raster image for printing - plotters use vector images that are not measured in dpi and only uses nodes and lines - can be scaled infinitely with no resolution loss unlike raster that uses pixels that are not recognized by these machines
