    Friendly Reminder

    After I work on a drawing for a couple of hours and save, I ask myself if I would like to do that again. This motivates me to backup right away.

    Nice Kitchen. How thick is the backsplash? Does the cat approve of all this?
  3. Have you ever cut the same file one right after the other? Are the problem areas at identical locations or do they vary?
  4. All your information is easy to grasp after getting the cutter. Perhaps Graphtec should clarify this better (for me, at least) with the manual they have to download for the CE6000 Plus. It shows a dual holder mount - one position to cut. BTW, just trying to point this out to the OP, just in case it may matter to them. Also, the mount shown in the downloaded manual is not the mount included with mine.
  5. Thanks. Now my wife wants to know why I keep looking under our furniture.
  6. The 6000 cannot easily cut out objects (as I found out AFTER the fact). You can, but you'd need a cutting mat/carrier which appears to be a consumable, itself. The FC8600 allows this feature, though.
  7. Nice job! What material did you make the "basket" out of?

    Testing Paint/Vinyl Compatibility?

    I want to test a paint manufacture with a few different vinyl types (Oracal 631, 651, and maybe 751). With the No/Low VOC and possibly other compatibility problems I have read about recently, can anyone tell me how long a test needs to take to make sure it is compatible? If the paint is one week old and I apply my vinyl test, at what point can I consider that the paint/application time is enough? Is the problem only that the vinyl doesn't stick or are there other problems like bubbling vinyl or something else? TIA!

    SVG/ Logo Issue

    Ha. Yeah - those features sound great. I'm sure I am missing many features like that. I do have weed box, so, there's that :-)

    SVG/ Logo Issue

    I can imagine. I have three licenses for Graphtec's pro software and I'm not sure if I will ever use them. I don't know (yet?) what I'm missing, but should investigate. That being said - Tux Plot seems very easy to use. I don't know how it could get any easier - (see above) :-). Of course, Inkscape helps me get there. It's amazing what it can do for the money. I should donate to Inkscape! Sorry to go off topic.

    SVG/ Logo Issue

    Yeah - Tux Plot is probably not the most popular program. It has been mentioned in these forum a few times going back nine years. It can send HPGL and GPGL (at least) giving me the flexibility to send speed, downforce, etc from the program. It may even be able to do contour cutting, but I haven't tried that out yet.

    SVG/ Logo Issue

    Tux Plot. It can use the fill, but not for cutting vinyl. Fill is more like a field operation. That is, if I understand it correctly.

    SVG/ Logo Issue

    It must depend on the software used to send to the cutter. The software I am cutting with takes an Inkscape svg stroke, without making the stroke a path, and the blade just follows the stroke.
