    Manipulate Text

    What program can manipulate the text like in the screen shot? I know to rotate it, but they rotated it and it has an arch to it.

    Manipulate Text

    Oh. Like an invisible circle?

    Manipulate Text

    Guess I could do text on a path then move it? I just tried it in Illustrator and an envelope distort looks ok. I wish the Flexi distort had more options.

    Having a hard time

    I don’t know what’s going on today. I’m doing a simple shape and just can’t get it right today. It’s blowing my mind. The base wants their coin made into stickers and I’m having such a hard time on the outline. Like it’s making my head hurt lol.

    Dimension wise it says it’s right now. Who knows. Still looks wrong. The bottom left does to me at least.

    I may have it now. You can see the burgandy line behind it. I did the shape and then made an arc between the two top points then adjusted the bottom points to match the angles. Now it’s square and not crooked.

    Having a hard time

    Yeah I put it in the scanner and tried to line it up. It’s so difficult since it’s not a flat top to put it to. I drew a box and tried rotating to get it straight across the box but hasn’t worked good either. Don’t know how else to do it.

    Template Background

    If it’s big and masking, it will slow it down for awhile. Should have seen when I had to print a 60’x60’ map. Yes that’s foot not inches. I made them into individual panels by masking 48”x30’ panels. Took longer than a minute or 2 to catch up.

    Taking the top one. The left side is higher.

    Like this. It looks ok, but it’s not. When I measure them they’re crooked. I can’t think of an easier way to do it though.

    Yeah trying to contour it to get the shape of the coin. I have the other vectors to put on it, but don’t have a vector of the actual shape. I did a circle for the middle. Then I drew one of the points off the circle. Then copied and pasted them to make the 5 points. Problem is I can’t get them right. Like one side of the point will be longer than the other or shorter.

    The problem is I’ve made it but making the shape and rotating them doesn’t look right. Some look rotated where the sides aren’t the same.

    Mimaki's Cut Is Off

    I know this is a long shot since not many on here have the printer / cutter like our Mimaki CJV30-130. It's been messing up for awhile, and it's hard to get help with it, and can't find stuff online. After we bought it from Grimco, Mimaki pulled their products from Grimco, so they won't help. Mimaki sends me to another dealer, but they don't help. Anyways. The print and cut is off. I don't know what to do.

    Mimaki's Cut Is Off

    Thank you for that. Googled that and found out that’s the clear strip in there. I cleaned it. Will try it out.

    Mimaki's Cut Is Off

    Oh and btw, I did the offset setting. It's always dead on though. I guess because it does a little box all the way to the right and cuts it out. The problem the machine has is the further left and bigger, is where the cut is off.

    Cover for Mimaki Printer

    When printing big areas of color, I would have spots from like dust or dirt that got on the roll. Came up with an idea.

    Wow. Just realized this is an old thread and was brought up because somebody was putting their site on here to sell stuff. No sure if it’s allowed or whatever. Dakota?

    You can always try vectormagic.com bud. You can buy the standalone program, or you can use it on the website. So many times are free, or you can get a monthly subscription.

    Switch ink type?

    I don’t know if this is possible or even need to. I have a Mimaki CJV30-130 solvent. If we could afford it, I’d love to get a latex. Is it possible or even worth it to switch it from 4 color to 8 color? I don’t know if it’s able to just get a different ink type and put it in or what. Also, should we stay with solvent or switch to eco solvent or water based pigment or solvent UV? Or is it not worth it or can’t be done?

    SCALP 4.074 just screwed me

    That’s the problem. People don’t come back to the forum so other users can find out the solution.

    60 Degree Blade?

    My Mimaki CJV30 does not do good on small letters and such. Instead of cutting, it generally rips. Figured it’s because it can’t swivle around because it’s so small so it rips since the blade hasn’t had time to spin around to cut. Will replacing it with a 60 degree blade help with this? Been researching and it seems like it, but wanted to ask my experts on here first.

    60 Degree Blade?

    Thank you. You know I didn’t even think to slow it down. That way the blade will be able to spin around. Thanks.

    Which HTV Series?

    So it seems like our dealer, Grimco, only sells Briteline and Sihl HTV. Anyone familiar with these brands? Which is a good one to get? G-Flex 210 Blockout, G-Flex Turbo Print 236, G-Flex Ultimate Print Nylon 235, G-Flex Ultimate Print Soft 230 matte, G-Flex Ultimate Print Soft 232 matte, G-Flex Ultimate Print Supersoft 233, G-Flex Ultimate Print Transparent Soft 234 matte, Sihl 4583 T-Printz. I know it’s a lot, sorry but thanks.
  24. tooler82

    Which HTV Series?

    Yeah we have a Mimaki CJV30-130 Printer / Cutter

    Which HTV Series?

    I may see if they can just purchase from US Cutter and get the Siser everybody talks about on here.
