Default Cameo & JPSS Settings

here are some settings i finally arrived at last night for a print & cut from the cameo onto JPSS for weeding

blade - 1
speed - 5
Depth - 20

they were a set of many basic shapes and it worked well,
but you may need a speed adjustment for more detailed designs

once you start weeding at a corner it goes fairly well (easyweed it is not, but it went better than i expected)

if you find better settings please post,
but i think this is a good starting point

take care

Default Re: Cameo & JPSS Settings

did some more last night wit the same settings above

cameo missed a few end cuts due to my mat being less sticky than it should
so i just cut these with an xacto, being sure not to cut through the backing

i also made a cut with the xacto to separate larger sections,
because the cameo was missing end cuts

but the settings worked well

Maybe I'll try it (I have never weeded the weedless paper). Have you had any registration issues with the Cameo? Mine seems to be off a little on the vertical, even after I calibrated.

It could be a lighting thing. Admittedly, the place I have it set up has poor lighting.

Thank for the Cameo settings -- I've searched for that info before, and was not lucky enough to find any -- until now! THANK YOU! I will try this when I have time...

Default Re: Cameo & JPSS Settings

Thank you for sharing. I tried it once and the polymer crumbled on me even large piece. So I decided to abandon it. I figured if it was that much difficulty with large piece then it would be more so with small pieces like small text and fine lines. That is why I came up with masking. It does not have be super accurate. A little slack would not be noticed and not critical.

I do have registration issue also. For some reason the cut is off relative to the registration marks. I called Graphtec about it. I was told negative value is allowed as input to make the corrections. So after the registration mark was read I jog the knife position to compensate the error the press the origin button.

The process in the video is entirely different than my procedure. The video is showing how to contour cut heat transfer using transparency with dot on it and vinyl cutter that does not have registration sensor. The dot was used as point of origin to tell the cutter where the cut outline was.

BTW the image was not mirrored so it will be backwards on the shirt.

With mine I contour cut a plain printer paper and use it as a mask. Remove and discard the image part. Align the mask over the the image on the transfer. Cover both mask and transfer with parchment paper. Press for 6 seconds at 225F to marry the mask and the transfer. Then press the married papers image side down on the shirt. Peel both papers together.

The video technique will come in handy for contour cutting paper mask for vinyl cutter that don't have registration sensor. The transparency is not needed if the dot is included in the transfer paper. It would be like adding the registration marks for cutters with sensor.

I have CorelDRAW plugin for my cutter so I cut directly from CorelDRAW. For other cutters that don't have plugin the contour cut line file has to be exported in EPS format or format that is acceptable by the cutter.

Here is how I would do to add the dot and cut in CorelDRAW it without the transparency.

1) Create the contour cut line but don't delete the main object(s) then save it.
3) Deselect all the objects.
4) Press Ctrl+A to reselect all the objects.
5) Press Ctrl+C to copy.
2) Open a new document.
3) Press Ctrl+V to paste the objects.
4) Delete the main object(s) then save it with new file unique name. To use it for other cutter that don't have CorelDRAW plugin export it as EPS file or other format.
5) Switch back to the first file.
6) Hide or lock the main object(s).
7) Select the contour cut line. Convert it to bitmap. Keep it selected.
8) If the Dynamic Guides is not active press Alt+Shift+D to activate it.
9) Press F7 to select the Rectangle tool.
10) Locate the left top corner until the word "node" at the corner handle of the bitmap appears.
11) Click on it and drag to the bottom right corner until the word "node" at the corner handle of the bitmap appears. The edges of the cut line should be tangible to the perimeter of the rectangle.
12) Press F6 to select the ellipse tool.
13) Press and hold Ctrl+Shift.
14) At the bottom right corner of the rectangle click and drag outwards to draw the circle.
15) Change the width and height values to .05
16) Click the black color in the color palette.
17) Delete the bitmap and the rectangle.
18) Unhide or unlock the main object(s). Then save the file.
19) Print the main object(s) with the dot on the transfer(s) as many as needed ahead of time.
20) Switch to the contour cut line file.
21) Load the transfer in the plotter as straight as possible.
22) Initialize the plotter.
23) Jog the knife on center of the dot.
24) Press Origin button.
25) Launch the cutter plugin or software.
26) Send the file to the plotter.
27) Cut and weed plain paper mask the same amount as the transfer(s).

My plotter is very temperamental when finding the registration marks. So doing it this way will be much faster.

I know you have a plotter with registration sensor but try it with AI and see how it plays out.

I would rather use plain paper mask than actually contour cutting the actual transfer to avoid wasting transfer(s) if something goes wrong during contour cutting and weeding the transfer. Plain paper mask is a lot cheaper than transfer paper.

If I was to contour cut a transfer I would use Magic Mask to hold the floating objects in place. I would place the transfer on the Magic Mask. Contour cut all the way through the transfer paper backing. Weed the transfer. Then press both Magic Mask on the shirt with light pressure for 5 seconds just enough so that the transfer polymer will stick on the shirt. Peel the Magic Mask off the transfer while warm to preserve its adhesive and reuse it later. Press the transfer using the transfer settings. Each paper backing of floating objects are peeled off the shirt individually.

Cutting and weeding the paper backing is so much easier and faster than weeding the transfer polymer. I said that because it was not pleasant when I tried to weed the polymer of JPSS.

The photos show before and after the transfer and the mask were married. I changed the color of the mask when the mask is on top of the transfer to show the color contrast better compared to white mask I posted in another thread. The transfer and mask in the photo were not trimmed. Overhanging transfer edges must be trimmed to prevent the polymer from transferring on the shirt.

Default Re: Cameo & JPSS Settings

that method would make life easier than cutting and weeding the jpss itself,
plus you are right about sometimes having a cut ruin the jpss (which is another added cost)

will try your method soon, as i have some more jpss on order

Can you make a video of whichever method you use be it paper mask of Magic mask? I use freeware CamStudio to make a video. I splice the captured output of CamStudio with video camera output.

Default Re: Cameo & JPSS Settings

my wife and i have never owned a cell phone or video camera

i have an old small digital camera that i could see if it takes video

what do i do if it does take video, upload it to the forum?

i don't know if there is going to be exif-type metadata embedded within the file,
so i'll probably just take some pics, edit in gimp to remove exif data and upload here

I upload my videos to YouTube so they are available to everyone.

Here are some suggestions:

Capture the digital part in your computer with CamStudio like creating the files, sending the data to the cutter. The rest is with video camera like loading the transfer in the cutter, aligning the knife on the dot, initialize the cutter, aligning and marrying the mask and transfer, pressing and peeling of the shirt etc. Splice the CamStudio and camera outputs. If you have logitech or something similar you can capture video with CamStudio. Upload the video to YouTube. Lots of steps I know. You can narrate better than I can.

If nothing else pics will do.

Sorry English is not my native language. I would be stuttering.

Listen to my narration in this video.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3_bYJ4rNZY

BTW if you are into rhinestone check my videos in YouTube (Sorry its
a no no, self promotion.) . Use Lnfortun as keyword in the search input window. Mostly non-vocal. I use YouTube's Annotations method.

Sorry I did not mean to hijack your thread.
