  1. I call it a cut slide cut which is two separate files similar to Erik's. We don't flip it around, that can be difficult if you've cut up the sheet. We scribe a mark on the table and material, then another mark 60" down the material. Finish the first cut then slide the material down to line up the 60" mark to the mark on the table. It is accurate as long as you have a hard stop to line the material up. I could make a pic it you need one.
  2. Thanks, Gary, I will check the Gsview when I get some time. I have Corel, Flexi, Enroute and CAD and can get the clean art I need. The other guys do not and I am trying to find a work around for them to get clean art from Corel to CAD. Currently they are exporting a WMF but when it comes into CAD it's a million line segments, no arcs.
  3. How do you get that eps into AutoCAD? I have Flexi and Enroute so that I can convert to a clean dxf but our drafting department does not, they only have Corel and AutoCAD.
  4. The Wire The Shield SOA Justified 24 True Detective That should keep you busy for a while.
  5. Does anyone have an issue getting clean, vectorized art from Corel to other software packages in dxf format? Most people export a wmf file but it comes into Cad as lots of small line segments. I have a work around to get it clean with lines and arcs. No splines, splines are bad.
  6. Yes we are milling with a router. It's a dome with embossed Open 24 Hours about 4" deep. Could you provide a link to a molding resin?
  7. We glued several layers of MDF together for a deep dish mold but one layer is feathered out so thin the MDF separates. We are looking at various other materials for making a 3D mold with a machineable product. I came across Hydrocal or Hydrostone. Any suggestions?
  8. Thanks, I printed the website for them. I don't know anyone by that name.
  9. Accubend people suggested disabling the bending arm and using it as a notcher/bender only. Should work, if so we can throw the Arete in the dumpster.
  10. Our Arete Notcher SE touchscreen is not clicking where it is being touched. The phone numbers our maintenance guy has are out of service. Anyone know where to get a new screen or this one serviced? Thanks. Reply here please, I'm in and out of the office.
