    New to vinyl. Need a cutter.

    Also remember there's nothing wrong with a used cutter. I bought a used Summa D-60 in 2008 for way less than the $1000 you've got set aside for a cutter. I've been very happy with it so far. They are probably one of the best tracking cutters on the market. I had to replace the power supply and the cutting strip over the years., but that's it. I run Kleen Kut bladesand it jut keeps cutting. List price on a new Summa D-60 is $2290.00 Here's one if you're handy and can replace the X axis belt and live near Roanoke, Virginia. It's on eBay with a starting bid of $100.00 come with a computer as well. The media flanges that come with the cutter that are laying on top are one accessory that also aid in tracking of the vinyl. https://www.ebay.com/itm/184220275643?ViewItem=&item=184220275643 Found the belt for $91.84 https://www.digiprint-supplies.com/en/summacut-assy-y-belt-d60-399-631-pbesusu6014.html?category= As MZ Skeeter said Graphtec are excellent also. Another one to look into is Roland.

    Rounded corners

    Yes there is a way to do it. After you've made your square, in Design Central click the third tab over (Red Arrow). Go down to third window down and click rounded then the next window down to round the corners (Green Arrows). Once you get the desired amount of roundness all 4 corners will be rounded over. Next with the square you drew highlighted click on the Arrange tab (blue Line) go down to the convert to outlines (Blue Arrow) and click on it. Now under the Path Edit (I have mine pinned to the top toolbar) Click on the Sharpen corner tool (Purple Lines) and click on both sides of the corner you want to to remain square. Once you click on both sides you'll need to double click or hit enter.

    Help best waay to apply laarge vinyl

    If I were you, I'd install it dry. There are too many thin strips in that decal and the wet method could cause problems if the glass is wet. Use the hinge method by putting a strip of masking tape on the top edge. Tape it to the window by the masking tape on the top, making sure the decal is positioned where you want it. Lift the decal up from the bottom, start peeling the backing paper off of the top but don't take it all the way off. Fold the backing paper down to the bottom edge , holding the decal off of the window with one hand. Start squeegeeing the decal down from the top with the other hand. As you get closer to where the backing is folded, pull it down some more and squeegee more. Once you have the backing pulled down to a comfortable level you can pull it off the rest of the way and finish squeegieeing the decal.

    Weeding Tips

    Yup couldn't have said it better. I also use a very pointed pair of tweezers and then a dental pick for the small stuff.

    Remove drawing border .dxf

    Isn't Graphtec Studio the same as Flexisign? If it is there are a number of ways to remove a border. If it's a border that Graphtec Studio shows on the design space you can turn it off in Design Central. Click the little fly out arrow as shown in the third photo and turn off the Show Border If the border is incorporated in the graphic you can select the whole graphic and click ungroup like in the second photo. Then click off of the graphic and click back on the border and hit the delete key. The last way is to right click on the graphic, click select within and then chose the border and hit the delete key. This is shown in the first photo. I hope this helps. Doug
