Design software compatible with Roland vinyl cutters.
Full featured design software that also functions as a plug-in for CorelDRAW® and Adobe Illustrator®.
CutStudio allows you to create your own text and graphics, enlarge or reduce, reposition or rotate, create mirror images, and more before outputting your design to a vinyl cutter to be heat applied with a heat press.
Creating a background layer will involve using a contour tool within a graphic art program. In CorelDRAW®, for example, use the Interactive Contour Tool to create additional layers to the outside of the original object. Keep in mind, when cutting a background layer you will need to perform test cuts and adjust the cutting specifications the same way you would cut a foreground layer.
Why are designs not cutting smoothly and leaving ragged edges?
First, check that your blade does not need to be replaced, then verify that you are using the proper cutting guidelines for the material you are cutting. If this doesn't solve the problem, it could be the amount of nodes in the design. To reduce the number of nodes in a design you will need to use your graphics program's node edit tool.
