Thanks for the replies... Was primarily to be used for cutting composite and foam.
Mainly trimming offcuts down, as opposed to full sheets, get those cut by supplier.
So now undecided. Seemed an ideal, dust free cutting system.

Back to the drawing board I guess.

Diamond grade reflective striping for accident repair

Hi all, have been asked by an accident repair centre I do regular work for to replace a yellow diamond grade reflective stripe 50mm wide ( about 6m long ). Can any one point me in the direction of someone who will supply small amounts, as buying 25m is not viable.

Many thanks

Hi, if I remember correctly go to Cut ( drop down menu ) then select plotting defaults and there is the facility to select start and end points for cutter.

Select where you want start and finish then apply & save.

If it's any use and not too late... I use a small soldering / plumbers torch. Think it was about £25 from machine mart & fills up with butane lighter gas.

Works a treat on small stuff but takes a while on large panels.
