Overlapping and repeating bmp designs

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 need repeated on several yards of vinyl.How do I do that without getting that dreaded white separation line?I thought that could happen in the Clip &Tile area but I’ve been fussing with those settings longer than imaginable and I’m obviously not doing something correctly. Can someone help? I…See More

I guess I have too many cutlines and just have to weld all of them in each object to be one so outline is the only cutline.  It takes an oldie a little longer to figure it out!!!

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.

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
