Re: Vinyl cutter help

I'm reading on them, seems to be a real nice machine. As far as vinyl..where do you get it? Also, I had a lady cut for me but her regular vinyl would not stick to my textured black...which is 90% of my coatings. How do you know what vinyl to get for that? She eventually ordered other stuff and it w...

Re: Vinyl cutter help

Just bought my wife a Silhouette Cameo 3 and she is going to town with it. The bed is a little smaller than something like the US mentioned above but you can also run 12" wide rolls through it if you need bigger. The software was what led me to it. My wife isn't very computer savvy and the sof...

Saw how popular these were for Texas so I figured I'd try my hand at a few designs... I haven't cut yet but they look clean in Sheetcam. Check and resize to fit your needs. If you cut one please post a pic. I'll probably cut a few next week depending on how things go with the storm down here. I trie...

Re: New member blowing up list

The occasional file from the past that pops up is fine. I've seen some great files that got bumped from years ago that I snagged. But I agree that this new member disrupted the flow of the entire file sharing forum. It is nice though to see people say thanks. :)

Re: Double cutting?

Make sure you're not downloading files that have cut paths on them too. Some files you'll get for free have the cut path added to the drawing that shows as a second line on the drawing if you zoom in on it. If you use sheetcam on a file like that you would get 2 separate paths.

Re: Cut length help

Even the demo version of sheetcam will do it. Just import your image, run operation - plasma cut on it. Click file, job report and then ok after you select your options. The full report has everything you would ever want to know about your drawing on it. I run the demo version on my home computer an...

By chance did you disable the tip saver and enable VAD? Those two settings were why mine weren't working.

After I posted that I started searching around at zombie stuff and saw the one zombie hammer makes like that too. I'm going to have to break down and make some stuff like this when I get out of the rush I'm in right now. Too cool.

That would also make a great zombie cutout... Just change the stihl to a bio-hazard or something.

Re: Small Circles Not Round

When I bought my kit from PPLLC they sent red locktite and instructed to put it on the shafts and the screws.

I haven't had any slippage yet. Is a little bit of a pain if you need to adjust a pulley though.

Re: Tips for spotting looped lines/artifacts in drawings?

The only problem with that Jacky is that there weren't any open lines in this one. I looked. With a little tweaking I think it would cut out ok but this drawing definitely had a lot of issues.

I had the same considerations for an estimate recently too. Customer wanted silhouettes cut out of copper. Best price I got was $600 for a 4x8 16GA sheet. I gave them the price of $900 for the sheet and told them I'd charge by the inch for the cuts and do them pretty cheaply. Luckily they said it wa...

Re: Tips for spotting looped lines/artifacts in drawings?

For grins, I ran the file in sheetcam and told it to loop the sharp corners with a triangle and ran the operation. It points out a bunch of corners you would probably want to clean up a little but I didn't see an obvious fault. Then I ran the same inside layer but with an outside offset to check the...
