Re: Cutting Issue - Feeding incorrectly.

I don't know your particular cutter but if one of my customers posted this same issue, I would first have them verify the cutting mode in the Cut Settings window. If you have Origin Point selected, then the shapes are moved to the origin for cutting. If you have WYSIWYG mode selected the shapes cut ...

Re: Export to AI or EPS

You can also print to PDFand most programs that except EPS and AI, also accept PDF. Go to File>Print and see if you have an option regarding PDF. If not, then you can find free "Print to PDF" applications on the Internet. I have more solutions if you get stuck so definitely post back!

Re: Issue when attempting to cut file after switching Mac to

The calibration for the PNC laser light is stored in SCAL, not on the cutter itself. So, you need to go the computer that has the PNC working perfectly and then write down the laser light calibration numbers. Then go put those same numbers into SCAL on the other computer.

Re: Cutter or software?

That's most likely an issue with the cutter itself. Make sure your cutting speed isn't too fast and also make sure everything is clean and there's no random stickiness on the pinch rollers or even on the bottom of the vinyl.

Re: Not all of my decal will cut

Did you type out the text yourself or was it imported into SCAL?

Re: tracing

Increasing Contrast in the Trace Image window will increase how much of the image is included in the trace which should improve the connecting of the lines. Beyond that I can't help without seeing the actual image because every graphic is different from the next.

Re: outlining an image

Select your shape and go to Effects>Shadow Layer. Enter the desired Size (thickness). If you need more help with any settings, have a look at Section 9.04 in this user manual:

Re: tracing

That's a very difficult question to answer without having the image itself to examine. For example, is it black and white or colored? Is it a photograph or is it clipart? Does it contain lettering and other shapes with sharp corners or it it mostly made up of rounded shapes? What is the resolution o...
