The Vistool Owners Club

Recommended Posts

I'm Gravo through and through, I do'nt need a club to rave about my machine. I'll keep my Rolls Royce you can park your mini on the drive thankyou.

 

To be honest never used vistool etc so cannot compare, I think I will nip over to see fast fix and check it out so I can then comment with authority.

The proof is in the pudding...let's see your work, buffoons! :smt047

 

Calm down Gravo users, at no point did we say we were better than you, or anything similar, just that we like what we've got & don't mind sharing thoughts & ideas as appropriate with others fortunate enough to be using the same system.

 

Once the membership entries have settled down, the interesting stuff will begin!

That's not the spirit of the club man, defeatist attitude, have you tried the depth profile, or the optimize sequence, or the measure circle 3 points. You need to get yourself aquainted before the clown pays a visit. we need to look good here :smt102

So, talk us through the optimize sequence thingy then... :smt102

OK say you have a complicated logo. Select optimize sequence and it stops the diamond flying about willy nilly like one side then to the other, it optimizes the sequence of cuts to the shortest time and the quickest route.Truly a Vistool gem

I just want to say what nice people those u-marq guys are.

 

My CX4 recently developed a fault and without hesitation Mark came and took it away and left me his demo machine.

After repair he brought it back, (hows the back Mark after lugging it the stairs!) set it back up and then spent the next hour advising me on some production issues I had!

Nothing seems too much troble for them!!

Well done guys =D> =D> =D> =D>

If you have a logo select show sequence and you will see the numbers they will be all over the place. Optimize sequence reroutes everything for the fastest time. Comprende

 

After this tip off last week, I investigated & found how this works. Brilliant one from rlj.

So today, when I had an engraving job with quite a complex logo & lots of text....I forgot to optimise the sequence until it was half way through engraving #-o

 

I blame it on the sleep deprivation!

We have a Universal 300 running vistool 8, please can we join your club too?

And having read 'Logo zapping the Andy way' about how he does it on a Gravograph, does anyone have a similar tutorial for the Universal?

Thanks, Valerie

I PM'd this to key cabin but i'll put it on here in case it helps anyone else

 

I'll see if I can guide you through the batch of plates thing.

 

first of all set up your flat bed and make sure its centralised.

next go to auto layout,in machining mode select flat bed. then enter the dimensions of your plate.

enter your text assuming all plates are to be engraved the same.click ok.

 

then go to standard engraving or alt+2 that will bring up a box headed standard production. now lets say for example you

want to engrave nine plates enter 3 in in the X box and 3 in the Y box. go to preview and you will see all the plates. then just hit ok.
