    Looking to get a new cutter

    ernie, you mention you can't do much as far as design goes with LXi. There are several vector design programs such a CorelDraw or AI Illustrator, or a free program, Inkscape. Inkscape may not have all the bells and whistles of the other programs but it can do most everything you'll need.
  2. If the customer is not set on that design I'd suggest changing the white rim to black and putting a white outline around the red rather than black.

    I have done some very "bad" traces that had several thousand nodes and my value cutter handled it with no issues. That doesn't mean it was a good cut or trace, just that it takes a lot of nodes to actually over run the memory.

    You mean the weapon from Terraria? Or you want the shards of ice hanging from things, as in icicle?

    tatty jolly roger flag wanted

    Ha! Didn't even notice how old this thread was. And now that you mention it, I haven't seen the double post it in awhile.

    This happens a lot on these forums, the double posting of a file. Just curious, anyone know why this happens?

    dog silhouette???

    I think the problem he's having is finding the breed names of the silhouettes. Finding silhouettes is easy, finding them with labels is a bit harder.

    Hotronix Laser Alignment

    Unfortunately not an option for me on my day job computer.

    Hotronix Laser Alignment

    I think $50 is a little low, best I found is the Quarton Laser Module VLM-650-28 LPT for $25. (sorry can't paste links for some reason) The video showed 4 lines so you'd spend at least $100 for the lasers, plus another $15 or so for a power supply and you'd still need a way to mount the lasers so you can adjust them.

    651 works well as sandmask

    I've used 631, and it works just fine on flat surfaces. For mugs and glasses though the curves of the item cause issues and the 631 doesn't conform easily.

    New to vinyl , looking for a starter Machine

    I bought the starting pack you are looking at. And while it has served me well, it wasn't as good of a deal as it seems. The MH is an ok machine but for letters any smaller than about half an inch tall it really is a pain. As for the green star vinyl that comes with the kit, it's good for practice, but the better Oracal 651 is much easier to work with and lasts longer.

    Dyepress Poly subjects take a look

    I would think the other keys on the key chain banging against it would scratch it up and make it look pretty bad pretty quickly. But...I have no doubt people would buy them anyway.

    SVG to EPS

    The original has a masked fill pattern. I changed it to a solid color and removed a gradient fill. 298th_Support_Bn_DUI.eps

    Need a hand on this one

    I basically redrew it from scratch. I drew a single vertical line to match what was already there the duplicated and rotated it 30 degrees, and repeated till I had all the lines. Then I drew the circles at the necessary sizes. Then I copied one line of the circle/numbers and placed them on the lines lined up with the circle cross points. Then I groups the circle/numbers and set their rotation point to the center of the large circle, then duplicated and rotated it by 30 degrees and repeated. The rest is just fine tuning.

    Also noticed the circles were not circles. Here's a cleaned up symmetrical version. joesorig.svg

    Need a hand on this one

    Are all the lines suppose to come to a single point in the center? Cause they don't. Also the circles are not centered on the line crosses. I think easiest thing to do would be to redraw it from scratch

    Arab Brushstroke std (D) looks pretty close.

    Anyone want to make these for me

    Just an observation, the curve of text doesn't quite match the oval. Personally it'd bug the crap out of me every time I saw it.

    Anyone sell 12" x 50yd oracle 651 vinyl?

    I had to do that with a 48" role that was given to me. Just cut it to size with a miter saw, worked great.
