    A lot of stamps are made with just shapes vector cut. Wander through the stamp section at your local craft store. Think about things scrap bookers would use to decorate their pages.

    I agree, each machine has it's place. I know for a fact that we couldn't have done a fair amount of work we have done over the years on a Chinese C02 laser. I would estimate that we have done well...

    In the past, when all we had was 45w, I cut a lot of 1/2" clear acrylic. Not in a hurry, but I cut it.

    Kev, that's caused by a dull beam. You need to sharpen your beam.

    You can get a beam sharpener at the hardware store. It's between the aluminum magnets and the slack for rope ;)

    Slackers ;)

    Congratulations on the new purchase Greg, I think you'll be really happy with the improvements made on the Fusion series. It's a lot better built than all the previous models of...

    Greg, sorry for the delay, I didn't have access to Job Control when I read this last night.

    Select "Ordered Dithering" as the process mode.

    VHB tape. You can get it in different thicknesses, just get the thickness you need. It won't come off. Ever.

    Wait until you get our bill ;) Good luck in your shopping, whichever direction you go.

    You don't have to spend $30,000 on a laser for a mainstream model. We've bought 3 and we've never come close to spending $30,000 on one yet. Epilog makes models that are less than $10K. Contact an...

    If you aren't up to troubleshooting and fixing things, then I suggest you spend some time looking at this forum in detail. Take a look at what is asked on a daily basis. On any given day, probably...

    You're probably not going to anneal anything like that successfully, in your home, on a regular basis for production.

    Any reason you have to use the liquid to glue it? If it's back painted, I'd...

    Yes, there most certainly is a measurable difference in Western machines and a Shenhui machine. Does the areas where they are different matter to you? I have no idea. Both systems have their places.

    Make all the tick marks hairlines and vector mark them all. They are too thin to engrave. There's not enough time for the laser to turn on and off for such a thin line. Mark them all hairlines and...

    There's a guy out there that has made millions by selling a "franchise" sign setup. It's a unique deal because you pay up front to buy the "sign shop package" from him. It's $180,000. For that, you...

    Yes, you want to vector mark the lines. Something like 2 on the speed, maybe 15-20 on the power as a starting point. Try it on the metric side to get the setting right ;) Don't try to raster them.

    Learn how to use the pen tool and the bezier tool. Those seem to lose 90% of the people (not for complexity, just for lack of trying), they just don't bother learning either of them. To me, if you...

    I imagine FastSigns are different in different places, but around here, there's about 6 or more of them. Might be 10 or more. Not a one of them make anything. They have a central manufacturing...

    Chris, post the settings and depth you're getting and some of us will give it a try and let you know.

    Michelle, try and save it as a PDF and see if that fixes it. I'm running Illustrator CC and Corel X5. I saved it back to CS4 as an ai file and it gave me the issue. When I saved it as the latest...

    It's weird Doug, I've never seen anything like it before. It looks jagged. Not pixelated, but jagged, like trying to drag a straight line on an angle and it can't resolve it at that resolution, so it...

    Last night I opened it in Illustrator, saved it as an eps back to CS5 or something like that. I opened it, saw the jagged edges in Corel. Came in this morning, it was still on the screen in Corel,...

    I'm seeing the same issue Michelle. I'll try and get some time today to look into it a little more and see what I can figure out, but it's smooth in Illustrator and jagged in Corel when it's imported.

    Michelle, you need to zip the file and then upload it. They allow much large zip files than normal files on this forum.

    Michelle, how about attaching one of the ai files (you might have to zip it to upload it here), and let us try to see the issue you are having. I've been using both for a while now and I tend to do a...
