    Ink Cutter

    I've used the pen tool many times. When I import, download, create, etc. a new project I will draw it out on paper to see what it will look like. I then look for any uneven lines, out of round areas, and any other needed repairs. I then open the file in the node mode and make the repairs. The pen tool has saved me from wasting vinyl many times. Years back I purchased drop in "pens" that Graphtec made and sold that take the place of the blade holder. I still use them because I can pry off the top cap and add regular printer ink in them.

    Vinyl Crinkle Issue

    Just make sure that the rollers are over the gritty portion of the drive roller.

    Vinyl Crinkle Issue

    You should put the rollers out as far as you can. I usually set mine at around 1/2" from the edge of the vinyl

    Ricoh sg3110dn blockage

    Well, after trying everything under the sun and going to Sawgrass for help, I am sad to say that my Ricoh printer has gone to R.I.P. I went through all the tests and checks from Sawgrass Tech Support. I even gambled on two new ink cartridges, but the error codes were still there. The printer would not even allow me to reset it to factory specs. Sawgrass Tech Support, three different techs, all said that nothing eles could be done. Just like Dakotagrafx said, my workload does not justify a new replacement unit.

    Ricoh sg3110dn blockage

    Right after I made my post I took the new cartridge out to inspect the inlet port. I spotted what looks like a dark gel like substance in the port. The other color ports were clear. When I get back from my running around this afternoon I'm going to try to clear it out. I'll carefully clean out what I can grab with various tools and picks and then use a syringe to try to suck out the rest and flush out whai I can. Wish me luck!!

    Ricoh sg3110dn blockage

    Hi all!! Can anyone give me advice on how to clear a blocked printhead on my Ricoh sg3110dn sublimation printer? This is the first time since I bought it that I have had any problems with it. The yellow is printing a very pale color and the other heads are OK. The nozzle check shows just 5 faint lines of ink, out of 20 lines, at the bottom part of the printout. I tried many head cleanings and even installed a new yellow cartridge and ran more head cleanings. My workload does not warrant buying a new sublimation printer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  9. Try Signblazer Elements. It's free. Look for it in the Software section of this forum.

    You can do it in Signblazer. Manipulate-Expand/Outline/Inline. The help menu will show you how to use it.

    Help finding a font

    I've been searching for the "LEADER" font for a few hours but have had no luck. I tried find my font but I couldn't get it to scan the font from this picture. Something close would work also. Thanks
