One thing I started doing for the fill is using the Raster instead of the Hatch (if you have the DAS system). Then if I'm working with a letter or shape that can mirror half of itself I space out one side, copy the whole design or letter (in case of mess ups), delete the bad side, copy the good side, mirror the copy and line up both sides. Then of course you still have to make a few adjustments, but it works real well for some things. Of course I'm a little freakish about the whole spacing thing and things looking "even" My husband makes fun of me all the time about this. He looks at a design and says it's fine....but then I have to still go move some stones around to appease my OCD...ha ha ha.

Maybe just leave a small portion of a design to cut once by deleting a few dots from the second copy that will get laid on top of the first. I used to hate when downloaded art would have multiple layers on top of each other but now I see where that can be a good thing sometimes.
I have a GCC Jaguar IV cutter and have my over cut set to .45. My circles never come off when I first pull the design up. But I flip the backing for the SS material over and lay the template on the back side, rub my fingers over the circles and about 99-100% of them come out. I did try the double cut method and it totally screwed up my design. It was at the very end of a 2,000+ rhinestone design and stopped because of an error. The circles started popping out and jammed up the cutter and I had to re-cut the whole design. So I'm sticking with the one cut and making sure my over cut is set correctly.

Of course I do realize not all cutters have the over cut feature and maybe this does work better for others. Just be careful with that method.

I really like the look of the 2mm stones, I will be so glad when I get my cutter, although reading all the different post it makes me wonder if I am going to be able to do this when I get my cutter. I am hoping to find one next week when I go to the NNEP show in Houston.

U.S. Copyright Office and www.trademark.gov have great answers to clear that misconception up. Actually, if you do not hold the C or TM, you do not have the right to re-create it, even if not for sale, but, that is a discussion for another thread. One that has been created many times over on the forum already.

But the rule this is sited is not regarding copyright or trademark according to the law. It is a TSF guideline that was sited, because at TSF, breaking C or TM is not with the spirit of the forum. Many folks on here design, and can appreciate the respect extended to holder of the C and TM's.

I hope you can as well.

It is just as easy for Matt to create a video for the products he wants to demonstrate using a design he holds C to.

The point of the lesson is not the design, but the process.

I'm with you on the getting the spacing correct. I know most people wouldn't even see if a stone was slightly out of line. I've become very good friends with the alignment tool in SCP

This way the logo will not lose any of its detail or quality and can be as detailed as they want!! But, It will BLING out of this world! It almost look 3D on the car. You should see this thing outside. This right here is some BLING CHA CHING! for cheer and dance teams.
Thank you, Matt!!! Way to be Great Forum Member on many levels all at once!! Nice job, and thanks for sharing in a way that does not risk crossing lines or getting anyone in trouble.

Copyright holders have come here before and looked for their designs, not in a friendly way. It's best all around the way you just did it. Great job and Thx!

I don't know if this is appropriate, but I wondered if anyone has already set up a skull and crossbones design yet and if so would consider selling or trading?

I'm in need of one to do a custom decal ASAP and I'm just overloaded right now. So I thought I would see if anyone has already done the work and save a step or two.

Rodney has made a request that files not be requested nor offered on the boards. Sorry to be the bearer of what might be considered bad news, folks, but his board, his rules.

Here is the link to the rules on filing requestion/sharing. Please look:

https://www.t-shirtforums.com/forum-i...tml#post547755


It says:

We Do Not Allow File Sharing at TshirtForums:
T-ShirtForums is a friendly discussion forum for the t-shirt industry.

Our members love to share helpful information and sometimes may not realize that sharing digital files that they didn't create could violate copyright and licensing agreements for those files.

Digital artwork (like clipart, vector files, etc) are considered intellectual property, and although you may own the right to use a set that you own, it often violates the licensing agreement when you share those digital files with people who did not purchase the digital files from the copyright owner.

Please do not use T-ShirtForums to ask for digital files to be sent to you.

Please do not offer to send someone a digital file that you did not create.

You can ask where you can buy a particular vector file or piece of clipart, but you can't ask someone to send you the files or to contact you via PM so they can send you the files.

Please help us out by pointing people to the places where they can legitimately buy the digital files they need

Wow, some of you have a lot of stuff!! Maybe if I get hubby to read about how much stuff you all have and how much space/spaces you need, maybe I can get that little building a whole lot quicker. I was waiting for my middle son to go away to college, he just graduated, but he announced that he was going to a local school and HE DOESN'T WANT TO STAY ON CAMPUS. So much for moving into the top floor of the house

A basket ball is a hard one,, as the lines curve,,
you did great,,
each one you do will be better,,,
just remember to curve your lines with the designs that need them.
