Difficulty with smaller cuts
Submaweiner posted a topic in SC Series Vinyl Cutter DiscussionsI cannot, for the life of me get anything with any detail to weed properly. I even have some issues with large stuff... I've done EVERYTHING I can think of as far as the machine are concerned. The cuts look perfect, yet I still cannot get smaller pieces to weed properly. I've read a little bit that it may just be the vinyl I'm using (Green Star Gloss Black and White). I just placed an order for Oracal 651 -- is this going to help? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Weeding lines cutting through some letters occasionally
PhaedrusZen posted a topic in Sure Cuts A Lot ProI'm working with a registered version of SCALP, so this isn't a watermark issue. =) I've recently cut a bunch of large names out in 3-4 different fonts (12"x30" or thereabouts), and have been using weeding borders around individual words with a single weeding line dropped through the middle of the word horizontally. For the first 75% of the orders I had no problems, and then had a single issue where the weeding lines cut slightly into the letters, but not enough for it to be a huge deal. Then, I had a project where it inverted the weeding lines, cutting right through the letters, and not in the dead space between letters, for about half of the name. Having to have trashed 2 projects I've quit using the weeding lines, but am keeping the border. Anyone know what might have caused that, or is it just gremlins?
