Offset of Blade Question

Posted on May 10, 2012 at 3:55pm 3 Comments

In our ongoing saga our next question is:

 

We were finally about to cut but there is a white edge of the media on PARTS of the letters but not around all of the letters.  I set the contour the same around everything.  Can anyone help me understand why the media would show around only some of the letter?  Is the offset of the blade a problem?  It was set at 250 but I see the range is from .01 and up.

Thanks in advance.

New Problem: Media crunching when printing

Posted on May 9, 2012 at 7:36pm 13 Comments

As we move along in learning our versacamm our new problem is the media keeps getting crunched as the heads go back and forth printing.  We are using imprintables spectra t shirt media that we heat press on shirts.  We have an old CJ500 that has been converted to a SC500. 

Everything goes fine for a time but then the one edge of the paper gets crunched.  It is firmly on the rollers when printing begins.  Is there an adjustment of the head we need to make?

Need help with Corel to Roland Contour Letters

Posted on May 3, 2012 at 8:50am 4 Comments

We are very, very new to the cutting of a corel design with my roland.  I have letters that consist of a block letter with an 8 pt black outline as the back layer with a block letter and a 4 pt white outline as the top layer, making the shadow effect.

I convert curves and add my countour cut line, but it keeps appearing INSIDE the black outline and cuts the black out.

I've tried boundary and countouring every way I can figure.  Obviously there is a setting/trick I don't know…
