Perforated cutting is a great feature in Versaworks for your VersaCAMM that gives finished die cut edges on your project. In this video I show you how to go from the normal decal to the WOW decal with finished smooth edges and a hang tag. Just by making a nice finished product your customers will be willing to pay more and be happier with the results.

The steps in the video go from an overview of perforated cutting to setting up the file, testing the cuts and running the job. Follow along to see how it is done.

As always, I hope this helps and let me know what questions you have!

Got it to work.  Went to Rolands website and downloaded the VersaWorks Pef Cut palette.  Works perfect!

Thanks for ya'lls help.

This is the instructions for  Adobe Illustrator but page five and 6 tell you how to make it work in Versa Works http://support.rolanddga.com/docs/Documents/departments/Technical%2...

http://support.rolanddga.com/docs/Documents/departments/Technical%2...  Has anyone ever used this file from Roland to set up PerfCutCountour on Versa Works it's an easy way to import the spot color into Corel and then send it to Versa Works to set up your cutting pressures perf and regular cut, just like test cut does, I just leave the file in versa works and click on it when setting up a perf cut run. Extract file then open with Corel and there's your spot color save on a palate or make a new one for it

Ray - what media do you have selected? Does it recognize the regular cut line? What version of Versaworks are you on? send me the file and I will check it as well. Send both corel and eps files - steven at imprintables com

Steven - I' using X6.  Named my color just like you have it and selected spot color.  When exporting as a eps I'm not converting, leaving as a native file.

Ray - what version of Corel are you using? You need to make sure the PerfCutContour color is a spot color - is named exactly like that and it is not converted when exporting the graphic.

Ray - if it is going on autos and is for a business or such meaning it is long term - I would use Arlon 600 XRP - a cast media

For general decals and items such as helmet decals - I use Arlon 4570 GTX
