I'm trying to help with the GSD files, and I'm running into two problems that I'm hoping someone here can help with.
I'm following all the steps in the PDF that was around here somewhere.
The cut files come out with perfectly matched halves, so that's good. But here are the problems:
1) It took about 5 hours for the cutter to cut! Blade set to 10/28 just like always.
2) This is actually the more critical one - my cuts were off by about 1/4". The silhouette and the cut lines matched up perfectly using the method in the instructions, but they were off from the actual printed file that the silhouette came from.
I've spent days trying to fix these. Any help would be appreciated, Brad
If you are following the instructions that I put out, I am finding they are by no means fast, though they do get the job done accurately. There is evidently some tweaking needed to reduce the cutting points in the files. I'll play with that and let you know what I come up with.
I have had files come out 1 pixel off in a particular direction, but never so much as 1/4 inch. Usually, you can either nudge the pixels when getting the outline (If you know they are going to be off) ahead of time or adjust the GSD file by changing the position layout. About .003 of an inch is just a pixel width by adding or subtracting it from the x or y axis.
Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
