    Do you watch American Pickers?

    I watch occasionally, but like any other reality show I always wonder in the back of my mind how much of this is staged.

    I give up

    ONe of the above comments mentioned speed, is it better to run a cutter faster or slower to get a good cut? I would think slower.

    App tape roller (Built to do the work) PVC not allowed!

    Is there anything holding the rod in place so that it doesn't slide?

    Files Won't Open

    You might try copying the file to a different hard drive or a thumb drive and open it from the new location.

    Try working in wire frame mode, can make it clearer what you are doing when you node edit, especially when you're just starting out.

    signblazer importing eps file to cut

    Did you save the vectored image as an EPS? Do you know where you saved it? In SB did you choose import and navigate to folder location you saved the EPS file? Or in inkscape, do a select all, copy, and then paste into SB. It will paste in huge but you can just scale it down to the size you want.

    signblazer importing eps file to cut

    SB can vector images but I've never got it to work very well. Inkscape is much easier to use and I've heard does a better job. I pretty much do all my design/layout in inkscape then either save as an EPS or copy and paste into SB.

    How to layout for print..

    Your cut contour is just going to be your white box, correct? So just move it to the CutContout layer and make it magenta and you should be good to go.

    Be sure to use the import option rather than the open file option.

    Look around, it's already here. Mindless people walking/driving/eating with their face in their phone, might as well be a zombie.
  12. Just do a google search for free web hosting. There are dozens out there. Building the page may take some time and reading though. Some hosters have tools for creating web pages and getting up and running with a generic format pretty quickly. Others just assume you know what you are doing and leave it at that.

    Whats the best way to intersect text

    Depending on the software, some give you the option to adjust the spacing between lines. Inkscape offers this. Just enter your text spelling out learning with a return between each line, center it, then adjust the Spacing Between Lines till you're happy. Then you can either try and line up the A's on top of each other, or leave the A out of one of the words.

    For me, just playing around and asking questions is the only way I've ever "learned" software. Just start out with simple things and work your way up.

    Graphic help/locating needed (tractor)

    Did you ask who made the hat, maybe you can get the image file from them.
  16. A Facebook buisness page would be an easy start. Just use it more for showing what you've done/can do, and as a way for people to contact you. There are also tons of free web site services but they usually have annoying adds, and can be a pain to setup on your own.
  17. Why not just ask him to send you the file again in a format you can use?

    Combine or tractor

    Any one have a combine to share? I don't need one but this post got me looking around to see what I could find. There are some ok pay ones out there but free is always better. ha!

    Adjusting blade starting point

    Have you adjusted your offset? Won't completely fix the problem but may help reduce it.

    PPF Paint Protection Film bunching

    Does your shape fill the cutter area? If not, I'd try sliding the pinchers to the area you will be cutting.

    Mine loves water as in a pond or lake but hates the hose and refuses to go out in the rain.

    Throwing away my MH

    I have a black lab that doesn't like to play fetch, I thought all labs loved to play fetch. She also rarely plays with any of her toys and the only thin she's ever tried to chew on that she wasn't supose to was a stuffed bear. Got her a giant stuff bunny to chew on and she wouldn't touch it. Sat in her toy box for almost 2 years then one day she started playing with it and had it tore up after about 2 weeks.

    Double checking your design in wireframe mode is a good way to catch things like this before you cut and waste vinyl.
