Re: student version

One thing you can do that may save you some money is to find a used full version of X3/X4 etc... You should be able to pick that up off of Fleabay for 30-50 bucks. Then, once purchased, install and you can then buy the Upgrade. Look for it to be on sale from Corel, you can find upgrades for usually ...

Re: Scaling a project

Scaling should be fine except for any pieces that rely on the thickness of the material for proper fit. So as mentioned above, if you have a slot that a piece fits into, scaling the object will make the slot larger and thicker so the piece will not fit properly. If it is just overall size then scali...

Re: Rust finish and clearcoat

You might also look into SteelFX, I think they have a rust color dye that may work. Then you can clear over that. Personally I would use Corten.

Re: FBI NA Logo

Quick Trace. You will need to check for drops and size accordingly. DXF file was too large to upload, so it is zipped. Just unzip, extract and you should be able to use it.

Hope this helps.

Re: PM45 Cut Quality

First things first. Have you tried new consumables? Is your air pure and constant, no drop in psi? Is your material properly and securely grounded? You say this started when you switched to a downdraft, have you tried cutting with the downdraft turned off? Just things to start at. Hope it helps.

I just redrew it. Please size accordingly as it may not be exactly correct. It should be perfectly to scale though. Also, check your bolt hole size. From your drawing it appeared that the hole size was .375" which is what I made them to, but that may not be correct. If you resize the entire pie...
