  7. when you look at the letter in in show outline only view, zoomed in, if there is only one line on the outside of the letters, then the letters will be full, if zoom in and you see two lines making up the letters, then you are cutting an outline of the letter.....that make sence?

    Create a square and place it on top of the coffee cup, then select both images, right click, shaping and then punch out. create your text, place it where you want it, select both objects, right click, welding, weld selected. Or you can select your image, select the eraser tool and just erase the cup. Hold down the left click button to use the eraser, the right button will add fill.
  14. Just separate in VM, select your image, right click it and then select ungroup. select the image again and just pull one layer off of the other
  15. I have cut a few sets, I used a cricut cutting mat and did two slow passes on each piece and they came out good. I got my material from a gun show a few years back, but you can buy a 5" x 7" piece from Talon for $10
  16. I had an order for two "America" themed rod builds this week. I started with building the grips out of 8# expanding foam, shaped on the lathe and then covered them with e-glass. After the grips was built, I dipped them in a "Thin Blue Line" flag pattern. Once glued to the blanks, I did all the thread work and used Oracal 651 to put stars and names on the rods. The 1st rod is a split grip inshore flounder rod. The second rod is a full grip sheepshead build.
  17. Thanks! The decals are covered with 2 coats of thread finish, so the decals are on there till the cows come home!

    what brand adapter did you get?
  21. Did you import the image and vectorize it? You saying everything else cut good except that, I would say it's the cut file. Zoom it on your "B" and see if it has smooth lines. What cutter do you have?

    sc cutter

    I've had my SC cutter running for a little over 12 hours one day on a last minute 500 piece decal order for a ducks unlimited banquet. My cutter will change "tone" and sounds louder at times, But it has never messed with the way it cuts or runs, My SC is a little over 5 years old and still gets used weekly and cut good for what it is. I did save up a little from each job and bought a Titan 2. The servo cutter is night and day better than a stepper motor cutter. Granted, the titan 2 is no graphtec or roland, but it is a Cadillac to me, upgrading from my Sc.
  24. Click the cut button and then click on the vinyl spooler. On the vinyl spooler page across the top, click on the settings and check the inches box.....or when you open the program, click on settings and check inches
