This is probably obvious but you can flip the blade four times before you need a new one......just look at the tarnish on the corners to see which have been used.
Figures I'd spend big money on equipment and worry about the cost of a razor blade.....
Dunno, mine came with a SummaCut D60. Maybe they were out of the blue ones? Bonus for me!
It fits right in the groove on the Summa. I don't see how you'd break it unless you tired to cut aluminum sheeting with it. One thing I do wonder about is replacement blades. I'm about due for one.
I have thousands of fonts and I still need more. What you need is a decent font management program (one comes with CorelDraw that works) and there's a free one out there called "The Font Thing".
They allow you to install/uninstall fonts, view them, etc on the fly. If you install "too many"...
My eBay experiences have mainly been in the selling category. Before "signs" it was sports cards from my own collection (approx. 500,000). I now have an eBay Store for vinyl and between the fees, cutthroat competition, and management of the store I'm probably closer to breaking even than I care...
It appears you can still get supplies at http://www.summastore.com/supplies.php?sess_id=7aba547758f35fb06636d48ecd8c867f
I'd call and ask them how old this printer is and how long the supplies will be available before I bought it.
I have the Versacamm SP-300 and use CorelDraw and the ColorRip 2.x software. It's very close with colors although I wouldn't want someone running around holding Pantone swatches up next to my prints.
I've never used any of the other rips. Seems like an expensive experiment to me. If it ain't...
Various versions of CorelDraw (since 3.0 when I started using it) have tried to be many different things. Has anyone ever produced anything with Corel R.A.V.E.?
Its been called a desktop publisher, a web site program, etc. Unfortunately for Corel, other programs do all that stuff better...
The long and the short of it is that color selector on the contour tool doesn't work the way you expect it to (at least not the way I expect it to).
Just "Break" the contour and color each contour separately.
Have you tried Windows XP Compatibility Mode?
Right Click on the executable for Signlab (the icon you click on to start the program), Select Properties
Click the Compatibility TAB
Click the Check Box under Compatibility Mode
Try WIN 95, WIN 98, etc
Who knows....stranger things have...
Another way to do it would be to:
select VIEW>SNAP TO GUIDELINES
Click and Drag on the ruler to create a Guideline
Click on each object and move it to the Guideline
Each object will "snap" to the guideline and will abut each other
I found no "automatic" way to do it.
Zoom in, hold down the control key and nudge it over using the arrow keys?
You can adjust the "Nudge" distance in the TOOLS>OPTIONS>RULERS. Holding the control key down makes it a "micro" nudge.
There's probably an automatic way to do it but this is how I'd do it.
Your plotter may also have settings for cutting. Some allow you to cut once, twice, or more times...............
Most times, its the graphics piled on top of each other. Some programs do that when they export/convert files.
