  1. Yes, in the CutFile Manager, you can edit both the Width and Length of the Vinyl tiles and add Overlap at those points. In the Attachment the Circle is 48 inches with a .5 inch Overlap along it's Width and Length. (Pro Version shown)

    The Short Answer? "No" . As far as I know, there's not a Flat Phone App that will run a Cutter (Plotter). Now, You can (as mentioned) take a picture with your phone then Convert it from Pixel Based Image to a Vector Based Image with Computer Software Like Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, or Corel then output it through Cutting Software under Windows or Mac OS and cut it on a Vinyl Plotter but, not directly from Phone to Cutter, as you mentioned.

    Free update

    Thanks CarDude & Shane... Appreciate the info. I was thinking about an Update but don't want to upset a working setup with unnecessary problems. (I'm about 25 miles south of Richmond, Va.) Thanks again

    Shane, was your Vm Pro the US Cutter version or Full version? I'm generally in the "If it Ain't Broke, Don't Fix it" Camp with Haumana but, curious as my Full Pro Version 4.0 is from 4/2014. What was your Version, cardudenc ?

    Cutting in sections

    Believe you'rere right, Mike.... seems the 'LTR' Version of VinylMaster does not include the Tile Bleed (Overlap) Tools.

    Cutting in sections

    Working from Vm Pro here but I believe its the same for Letter... Select your overwide object to cut (Menu dropdown) > Send to Cutfile> (Select Tab 'Current Page' OR' Selected Items' then >Send ReSelect your object > Edit> Overlap ( Enter a Value... .125 to .250 inch works well) OK > Apply Click "Cut Page" on Menu Bar and a Cut Current Page Module should open that allows you to select which of the Tiles you wish to cut.

  8. Re-Save your Original image in a Bitmap Program like Photoshop or Gimp as a .jpg with a slightly larger background so that the Black in your Example Image does not touch the outside edges of the Background. Alternately, you could remove the white background in a bitmap Program and save as a .png with a TRANSPARENT background and Trace in VinylMaster.. Then, Vector Trace.

    What vinyl for boats?

    I've had excellent results with Orafol 751 and 951 on Marine installations. They're both Cast Vinyls with the exact same adhesive. The 951 is rated @ 8-10 years and the 751 @ 7 - 8 years, depending upon color and sheen.
  10. Yes, Dakota, that is how the 'Drop Shadow' function in Vm works. As far as not having the 2 layers over top of one another; Ungroup the 2 layers (grouped by Default when Created with the Drop Shadow Module) And Punch them out. (Not sure if the Cut Version has all these Features.

    VM cut error shut down pop up

    I also had problems with it crashing with large files on my laptop but it's been smooth sailing on this i7 Desktop with 16 gigs of ram.
