    Need Help with Inkscape

    Might also try doing a copy paste from inkscape into signblazer. That's pretty much how I do all mine anymore. Been having issues lately with exporting eps from inkscape and opening in SB.

    Testing my new air eraser

    The air eraser has a hopper on top that holds a few ounces of material. It's about enough to do a glass/mug but anything larger you have to pause and refill the hopper as needed.

    Bar Sign

    I'm surprised the vinyl glows so well with edge lighting of the acrylic. Very cool.

    need some combine, grouping, break apart curve help

    I don't have Corel either, but if the lines are now curves or paths, there should be a node points at the intersections of the "lines" If you delete the four nodes that make up the "white" square it should then become a black square.

    Playing with more glass

    Funny you post this, I was just watching a YouTube video of a guy doing a two color plexiglass carving with a CNC machine.

    Mason Jar

    There are many mason jar manufactures. The logos for all of which would be copywrited and/or trade marked. That being said, you can probably find what you want on brandsoftheworld.com

    Testing my new air eraser

    It will work, but you'll get annoyed with it rather quickly. You want a larger tank, I don't think I'd go much smaller than 5gallon, and a higher CFM. .51SCFM is really low. I have an 8gallon compressor from Harbor Freight. With a full tank I can usually do a complete glass or two before the compressor kicks on. I'm not sure what the airflow of the air eraser is, but my compressor does 4.5scfm at 90 psi and I've not had any problems with it. Also, keep in mind, you can get away with compressors that have low CFM, you will just have to pause when the compressor kicks on and let the tank recharge. A small 1 gallon tank and really low CFMs like the one you linked to you will be pausing quite a lot and it will get annoying pretty quickly.

    .SVG file format

    SVG is an open format, meaning anyone can use it. It's favored by free programes like Inkscape because there are no fees involved in it's use.

    Testing my new air eraser

    Sand is not ideal for most things, and is rather dangerious if you don't have proper breating mask. AO is better but protection should always be used. You can do it in your drive way, but it will be a bit of a mess and a waste of the AO. I built my own "blast box" with a large tote, plexiglass, some rubber gloves, and a vacuum cleaner. Works quite well. Only regret is that I didn't get better gloves, they are a bit too small. After the fact I found some blasting gloves for about $10 that would of worked much better.

    Your website traffic.

    meta tage keywords are not used as heavily as they once were to rank search results, but they are still used. the meta tag description is an important tag though. It controls what is displayed under the title in most all search engines. Have a good, short, clear descprition there will help people know what the page is about and more likely to click on it.

    Your website traffic.

    It will take a few days for search bots to find and catalog a new domain name. There is a way to "register" domains with google so that they show up in search results faster than just waiting for the search bot to find it. I tried it once but not sure it made any real difference in anything.

    How do you get the etching to show better?

    I would think lexan being a "plastic" would etch easier than glass. Is it that the edges of the etching are not as sharp and crisp when you try to go deep?

    Wet application and Trailer screws?

    I supose the teaching would be the big thing.

    Wet application and Trailer screws?

    From the RollePro web page Does this mean if you don't use 3M film you could be sued?

    Does it look bad if you etch deep on the front side?

    First Large Vehicle Project....

    I've heard good things about Simple Green for removal of sticky stuff. Haven't tried it personally, I do know it does a great job on oil/grease though.

    Isn't that the bullet from Mario Brothers? Don't know how protective Nintendo is of their characters, if this is for a customer might want to be careful it's not a setup.

    I'd go black and white.
  23. I believe most all cutters have an AC-DC converter within them so the square vs sign wave really doesn't matter the DC converter filters it all down to a constant voltage level.
  24. yeah, there's quite a bit you can do to a web page that people don't see but will help search engines find and identify your page.
