Re: Best choice for overall design software

Corel is best I think. But that is all I have ever used other than Omega since I also have an edge. Any program takes alot of time to learn. I have heard other prople say that Corel is hard to learn. No program that I know of will do everything you need it to do. Don't give up on any one of them so ...

DC4sx lines in certain colors

Ok I have had trouble since the day I got this machine. Not all the machine's fault, some out of my ignorance. I am printing a CMYK and the black passes have little lines in them. Looks like the ribbon is not rolling correctly and looks as if the ribbon has wrinkles. I changed the (black this time) ...

Lines in prints

I have wasted so much vinyl not to mention ribbon on prints that come out with white lines in them. I have a DC4sx and I primarily use cmy. My main issue is with my ribbons. They get to where they are not even when it rolls ...for some reason the ribbon has more tension on one end of ribbon so its n...

Re: Creating a soft oval

If you were to put this image on top of a background, would you see the outer square of white or would it fade directly into the background in an oval shape? I've tried in Corel but still have the outer square.

Re: Friction rollers

I have a Summa D60 for my plotter. I do set my rollers very close to the edge to get as much width as I can. Maybe that's it. Yes you might call it gummy...I will try the duct tape thing as well.

Friction rollers

I have just bought and installed just a few weeks ago two new friction rollers. They got sticky and had to be replaced. After only a few weeks now, I've noticed that these new ones are getting sticky pretty quickly. Why do they do this? Any preventive measures to take. I cleaned the other ones but t...

Re: Omega spot color problems

I use Corel and it is a breeze. Some people don't like Corel but I have used it for a long time and don't want to use anything else. The fact that you can print directly to my DC4sx is such a plus. It is just like sending it to your copy printer. I also have a Gerber Edge. It is no problem, but it d...

Cassette obstruction...help anyone

I have had my DC4sx for several months now. I am very new at the digital print as I have only cut vinyl for years. From the start, I have had hang-ups, some my lack of knowledge and some maybe not. I have learned about my printer and have worked through some of them with the help of some very patien...
