    New Engraver on the market

    Yeah, seems like you're really paying for the ease of use. Has lots of pre-orders so clearly their marketing is doing well.

    need your thoughts on two different options

    Wildgoose, in regards to the odd sizes of the Chinese cutters. I believe they are measuring the space between the sides, not the actual cutting area. So while you could fit a 28" piece of material in the machine, about 3.5" of that is taken up by the cutter head and about half an inch with the holder so you really can only cut 24" wide material. But advertising it as a 28" cutter sounds better than a 24" cutter.

    Once more

    That is the first result that WhatFontis.com came back with as well. Trick for getting online font identifiers to work on script like this is to edit the image and break apart the individual letters.

    Can't import EPS into SB

    Inkscape is pretty good and free design program. I do most my work in it then copy and paste into SB to do the cut.
  7. xpaperman, the append option in SB is a little check box on the right side of the window when selecting a file to open.

    Made a New Decal for my Show Car

    Bit of OCD kicking in on me, is there a reason it's not lined up vertically? Stripes on the decal not lines up with stripes on the car.

    Excel Spreadsheet help

    All of the above statements should have worked. The drag/fill option can be turned off so it could be possible that is the case but the copy/paste option should still have worked. Personally I would of froze the table at the second line and edited the formula in the H, I , and J column with an if statement so that it appears blank rather than 0. You could also use conditional formatting so that the cells are all white until data is entered into the row. This is all just aesthetics and personal preference though,

    Why would you charge to do this job?

    Shouldn't need the scraper, if the vinyl is static cling, and they shop is going to remove it for him. To answer the topic title, "Why would you charge to do this job?" Cause I don't work for free.

    Vintage headboard

    Is it just me, or does that second design above look like a goblin peaking over the headboard?

    Vintage headboard

    Depending on how elaborate you're wanting, tracing a photo of a real headboard wouldn't be too hard, or get several images and use them as a guide to design you're own.

    Glass etching

    Also, FYI, glass bead media is more targeted at stripping paint or cleaning up rust. Trying to use glass to etch glass is not an efficient method. For etching you want a media that is harder than the item being etched.
  15. Are you truly wanting a full wrap? Or just a solid color bucket with a decal on it? You can get solid colored buckets pretty cheap from various places and then put a decal on them yourself saving quite a bit of money. As Moody said, the decal would not be the costly item, it's the time involved doing a full wrap.

    Flexisign pro 10

    I know you said the fill option is not checked, but have you tried checking it to see if it changes anything?

    USB 3.0 and 2.0 cables are not the same and are not interchangeable.

    software for sc cutter

    So if the Silhouette doesn't work with his cutter, what he would need is a way to convert Silhouette files to something Scalp can use. Looking around on the web it does not appear that is an option either. Most of the conversion methods I'm finding are simply saving the work as a raster graphic and then tracing it with a different vector program. Not the best solution, but it is an option in a pinch.

    Best way to cut coroplast

    Found a couple of other forums where a water jet cutter was recommended and a couple where routers were used. Although that was on a wood working page where they deal with routers all the time. Sounds like the key to using a router was the correct bit, a variable speed router and going the correct direction.

    Best way to cut coroplast

    Bandsaw might work for those shapes, but I would image the edges will be left a little ruff.
  21. In Inkscape the only way I know of doing it would be to select two line end points and merge them, which works well if the nodes on top of each other, or join them which can require some tweaking because it joins the two points with a straight line.
  22. Take a close look at the nodes in question where the blade is lifting. I've seen some designs where there are actually two nodes directly on top of each other so it looks like complete path but there is actually a break in the path.

  24. Why not just create a small 1" square test box and use that to dial in the adjustments?
