I need help. New for me. Even though I’ve printed long lengths of media before, I’ve always done it with vectors that I was able to set up in Corel. This time, however, I have a bitmap pattern that I…Continue
This subject isn't my strong point, so bear with me.I just sent the cable guy away.He came to install a new modem. Before he touched anything, I asked him if my IP numbers would change.He said, YES,…Continue
"Roland used to make a fabulous 100% paper backed Poly fabric that was definitely printable. The only downside was that the edges needed to be sewn and you had to double print to get a more vibrant color reproduction. I haven’t seen the product…"
"And now that you bring that up, my shining Knight.......is there anything we can do about editing that path to the original spot? Can it be linked to a different path?

"I keep absolutely NONE in my queue.
When I finish the job, I simply save the rvw file.
Next time I need it, whether it be the next day or the next year, I open up that rvw file and ALL the settings are still there intact.

"Dennis, not that I think it matters (you probably have some other issue in play)......but for what’s its worth, NEVER turn off the computer when restarting the modem/router. That negates the whole point of the process!
Mine used to go from not…"
"I don’t understand how all this works. Ask me about software and I may have an answer, hardware configuration, not so much.
My printer was and still is directly connected to the computer also.......but it didn’t make a difference. In my…"
"Dennis, I have no business trying to answer you and I should just let Irv speak up......but when this used to happen to me back in Jersey, it was always modem/router. Not sure which. I just restarted them both and voilè. You can also…"
"Still looks like a blade or blade setting issue to me. Did you blow out your blade holder to eliminate any debris before inserting the new blade?
Easy way to check......is this the only file you’re having an issue with?"
"Dan, did you put your cut settings back to where you normally have them when you don’t perf cut?
If so, it can still be the blade.
I’ve had a bad ‘new’ blade more than once. Check the tip with a loupe if you have one.
"Wow! Talk about strangers! I know you monitor your forum like a hawk, Steven, but man oh man, we hardly hear your voice anymore.

"I’m doing great, thanks for asking Dennis......and yes, I’m warm and happy in sunny Florida now.
I had to laugh, I’m probably still operating (just fine) with whatever software Irv originally installed, as well, back in 2010. I…"
I’ve got no information whatsoever to help.......since I’m still functioning in the dark ages here, but I just wanted to say hi and send you and Vicki a bunch of hugs. Miss you guys like crazy.
Hope all is…"
"Well, Samuel, our inks aren’t opaque so if you’re not printing on a solid background they’re always going to look semi transparent.
You can try and double print, the color will look a little fuller but basically you’re going…"
Thank you so much. I have learned alot from all of you already and as a newbie to print and cut I can use it. I have done vinyl cutting for 4 years and love it and this will be such an asset to wall vinyl designs that we do. I got my new machine on thursday and spent today trying to get cutlines on a large mural and found it had been put into I think vector with alot of cut lines and not just an outline of an object so I am trying to figure out if there is a way to weld things within the mural without having to do all individual objects or even where weld is in Corel. I use another program to weld so this is the long way of doing it but I love it. Anyhow I look forward to being apart of this blog. Pat
Thanks for the invite. I have been looking for a group of like minded Roland folks. I have designed and ran my products on VersaCamm's as well as Pro III's over the years (8+). I am consulting for a company that is new to digital applications (they screen print vinyls and acrylic). They recently purchased a VersaCamm SP-540i and are pleased with the results thus far. During my last onsite visit to their manufacturing facilty this past week they were experimenting printing on seat grade vinyl. All looked good except when they were printing warm and cool grays (a digital industry issue it always seems). Trying to remotely help them as they move forward and am looking for general suggetions. I've always done gray adjustments on calendared vinyls using "tested swatches" This seat grade vinyl seems to be presenting a challenge because of not having a specific profile for the media. Anyway I'm hunting for ideas. Best, Wally
