Re: Need some education.

Not sure where the file is, but you could be importing it just fine but the lines may be the same color as your background therefore you wouldn't see anything. Try this, import and then press the CTRL +A. This is a "Select All" feature so if there is anything there, even if it is invisible...

Re: Copyright letter

I am just curious about this. Is there a difference between having products in inventory with sports team logos vs adding a sports team logo to a product you are selling as a custom feature. I'm just curious because I make a lot of fire pits, and just about every customer has been asking me to add ...

Re: Keeping DXF file photos safe

Depending on your software, you should be able to take any image and add a drop shadow on it. To do so in Corel, export your DXF out as a .png file with no background, then open photopaint. In Photopaint, open a new blank document without a background. Then open the saved .png file. Then copy the .p...

Re: Keeping DXF file photos safe

Add in a good sized fuzzy drop shadow to your pictures and take the picture at a slight angle. This will make it exceptionally difficult for someone to get a decent trace without doing a lot of work. If they can fix that then they can copy anything, even an obstructive watermark.

I use a small jar for small items, 5gal bucket for larger and a large 4ft vat for the larger stuff. Just suspend the item from the top with a rod spanned across the top.

Re: CNC Plasma cutting eye protection

Kinda taken back with some of the replies here. My opinion...and take it for what you are paying for it.....get some cheap glasses from your local welder while you can still see. Damage you do today will show up many years down the road and for less than 20 bucks you can avoid the issues that will s...

It's easier and cheaper than you think.

I started with that one, then upgraded to a larger tank for the bigger stuff and a switching variable volt power supply where I can monitor the amps/volts much easier.

Re: Hanging / Hook marks and $ question

Electroplating. Just use zinc. If you are shooting translucent powder a quick buff of the zinc coating will give a very nice shiny undercoat before powdering. For base powdering, just shoot over the zinc like normal steel. The plating is extremely durable to the weather and the powder seems to stick...

Re: Clear coat aluminum

Clear coat. Aluminum will oxidize over a short period of time and your polish will slowly fade to a dull grayish hue. If you are using spray clear, just prep like paint. For powder I would clean thoroughly and bake (out-gassing) to make sure everything is perfectly clean, then powder.

Everything I do is wire hung.

Re: Log in issue

There was a thread that had the fix. I think the way to fix was to download CCleaner and have it do a full clean of your system, cache, old files, hidden windows internet files that normal cleaning doesn't fix. Run that and you should be good to go. Found the other thread: http://plasmaspider.com/vi...

You're welcome. I think I got the notes from this site which may be someone else's credit. I added the guitar and I can't find it but I did one with a piano as well and one with a violin. It was a while so I am reluctant to take full credit for them. I have done quite a few and know that they do cut...
