Hello!

Do you know if there is a programme on the pc that I can do the same sort of thing I do on the is200? I want to design some graphics for the displays for father's day, on paper rather than using up plastic signs. :roll:

Bet you've never thought of doing this,

Set up your designs/text in Gravostyle as normal, clamp a 3mm thick piece of material in the vice (a little larger than your engraving area) this will act as a table, now secure some heavy paper/thin card to it,

Set the machining speed to medium & send the job to the IS200,

Now for the clever bit, source a quality fibre tipped pen & secure this to the spindle using some PVC tape, (the pen should be at an angle & the pen tip should be close to the diamond, but a bit lower) set the 'Z' axis & press go.

 

One IS200 drawing machine :) :) :) :)

 

I have used this method on occasions to mail out a proof to customers to good effect

Tel, Why not click the Wysiwyre button and print the job off. Or am I misunderstanding you. 8)

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I just wanted to design my own posters for the shop window displays, but on my own pc in the same style as my engraving! I thought the "cobbler" would know as he seems to know most stuff.
