Sounds interesting, Edward. Please give us a review of the product once you've had a chance to use it a lot. Can you replace individual blades or do you replace a blade unit?i just picked up a used knk zing,
but have not had the chance to test drive it
definitely looks and feels impressive compared to my cameo
Individual blades as mentioned above. We mostly use the fabric blade for cutting appliques out of cotton fabric or twill. I've found it cuts very cleanly, at least for twill and fabric, if I reduce the pressure slightly and cut tell it to cut twice. Takes a little longer but the edges come out very nice... We use it mostly for cutting greek letters. I have an Accucut die cutter but the dies are very expensive to get new ones in different sizes. Turns out the Zing in the long run was a cheaper option and it lets us cut pretty much any shape/size we need.Can you replace individual blades or do you replace a blade unit?
Good luck weeding JPSS. I tried it and failed. I rather cut a mask out of plain paper.it is individual blades
you can use clean cut blades in it as well (discount for forum members, and supposedly the best blade),
and you can use a roland blade holder (which seems to be popular, better control? easier?)
you can also get embossing and engraving blades for metal/wood,
one of the reasons i got it (embossed metal signs)
one of the first things i am going to do with it is print and cuts with jpss,
then some detailed/small htv cuts
it comes bundled with make the cut, and their forum seems to be the place for knk

Please post your result of contour cutting and weeding of JPSS..
Thank you for the link.here you go
i never had trouble weeding or adjusting my cut settings,
it was more difficult dialing-in the registration reading (for cameo you need black, dark reg marks)
i have seen a vid and read some tut's on the zing contour cutting
looks pretty decent, the machine gets close and you manually fine-tune the last piece of the puzzle
i appreciate and like your tutorial on masking the jpss,
i was just re-reading it again yesterday and thinking about a more permanent solution
like maybe overhead tranpsparencies (we mainly do set designs so it would be nice to have a pre-made/available mask)
Likewise, I only posted about the Zing because the OP asked if there were other options at that price point...I sort of hijacked your thread, but had not heard of the KNK Zing.
