Hi Patrice,

Yes, you can cut the circles from ai. Or, you can have someone make you the file and export it as an ai file and send it to you. I used to cut all of my templates from an ai file onto an older Roland Camm-1.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Barbara. I don't own a cutter yet, I'm looking into it, but I am pretty familiar with illustrator. Up to this point, using AI, I have created rhinestone designs by creating appropriately sized circles in illustrator for the stones and spacers, and placing them as symbols in the library. Is this how you are doing it? It would be nice if there were a plug in to illustrator that could "fill" a shape or line with appropriately sized circles, as the hand placing of circles is rather time consuming and not exact.

That's how I got started making rhinestone designs but in CorelDraw. It took hours to do what takes me seconds to do now. I'm glad for the experience because it gave me a very discerning eye for spacing but I spent countless hours designing that way!

When I first started, I had no clue as to what a vector even was and I think I'd been doing rhinestone design for a couple of months before I ever even heard the term "raster" so I think you're already ahead of the curve.

Patrice,

No, I never placed by hand...I am too impatient!

But at one point I was using WinPC to create the rhinestone designs and exporting as an ai file. Worked well.

Stephanie, Thanks for the vote of confidence, lol. I'm actually an ex-software developer, so I'm good with technical issues. However, it's that same background that causes my frustration when I see how much further the industry can go with software. Illustrator is pretty much an industry standard in the commercial graphic design/advertising sectors, but I also know that CorelDraw has been around for personal desktop publishing and such for years now and that's why applications for rhinestoning, etc. have had a Corel focus. Keeping my eye out for Illustrator applications and plug-ins....

By the way, when you mention that it takes you seconds now, may I ask what system you are using? Although developing a keen eye for spacing sounds enticing, I think I may pass on that skill.. : )

Barbara, Thanks for the advice, I'll check into winPC.

Oobling is $650. I don't have that kind of extra money so I have been learning CorelDraw and practicing templates that way. There are many macros out there and they seem to do some things well.

The Rhinestone World has a Corel macro that looks easy to use for rhinestones. Good luck

Default Re: What is Needed to Cut a Rhinestone Template

Hi! I'm just starting out with making my own rhinestone temp's. I am wondering how I take an EPS file and size for 10ss stone's. It seem's when I go really large I can use 10ss but if I want the image to be say 7x8 or around that size it won't let me use the 10s it use's something like 1ss. I am going a bit crazy trying to get this vector just right. I am using winpcsign and silhouette software.

Thanks,
M
