(using the vinyl cutter class at Techshop) In this paper I would like to instruct how to make a giant logo (in this case I copied the “La ...
In this paper I will show you how I created the logo using the knowledge I acquired in a class of “Vinyl Cutting”and the equipment from Techshop.
After taking the class of “Vinyl Cutting” at Tecnoshop I decided to make a more complex project than in class. I was looking for a little bit of ...
The first step was get a sticker with the logo of our city and scan it with a techshop scanner.
After scanning it
The second step was change the drawing so it would be suitable for the vinyl cut process. I started it by launching “Corel Draw”
And then opened the scanned file. The key sub-step using “Corel Draw” in this process was: A - Transform the scanned drawing in a bitmap drawing (Alt B ...
Final result in Corel Draw looked like this. D - I then exported the outlined file as a EPS (Encapsulated PostScript file)
The third step was to open the EPS file in a computer connect with the vinyl cutter
after I opened the file, I have 2 small substeps done in FLEXIstart: A - introduce the registration marks to precisely overlap the different colored stickers.
B - Divide the draw in 2 colors, red and green and send to the vinyl cutter
The fourth step was order the cut. The only trick to do this specific job is divide the cut in 2 colors with a pause the cutter in ...
The fifth and final step was use the vinyl cutter machine and repeat what we learned in class. The vinyl cutter machine is very simple to operate. I ...
First we put the blade (in this specific machine we put in the second slot because the first one is for pens for when you use this machine ...
Turn the machine ON (|)
release the trackers in the back of the bus.
Position the vinyl (keep clear around 2 inches in all 4 sides)
lock the trackers
Assign the origin pressing the “ORIGIN” bottom immediately after pressing the“ORIGIN” you have the chance to adjust the cutting speed and the pressure over the blade
Adjust the speed (V+ and V-) (speed in inches per second) (speed = 8: lower speed means better cut :) Adjust the pressure (F+ and F-) (pressure = ...
With both layers (main base vinyl layer RED and overlapping layer GREEN) already cut
And weeded out
apply transferring paper in the overlap vinyl layer (color GREEN)
to overlap the overlapping vinyl layer (color GREEN) over the main vinyl layer (color RED), we first need to spray water and soap over the main vinyl layer ...
spray water and soap over the base vinyl layer (color RED) to slide freely with the overlapping vinyl layer sticker until you have the right position to stick
The correct position is achieved by overlapping the registration marks
Then squeeze out the water from the the basic vinyl layer using a squeede pressing the transferring paper center to edge in all radial directions starting from the ...
Then make the final application, in this case, in the wall of Fire Brigade in La Honda :) I hope you will find these instructions useful. Good luck ...
