Re: Love this 3D optical illusion lift floor

Decided to kit out the Roland DG HQ elevator with a new floor :shock:

What do you think?

Re: Label printing with LEF-20

I've also seen a home made one from a customer which was pretty good and quite a bit thinner so less height loss. But the tac pad is the easiest and cheapest option and works great.

Re: Label printing with LEF-20

Hiya, There is a vacuum bed attachment available for the LEF-20, or alternatively you can get a 'tack-pad' kind of thing, which works a bit like one of those anti-slip pads you get for a phone in your car etc. If you call the Roland offices and speak to OMT (order management) they can find the part/...

Re: BN-20 Utility Cut Adjustment vs Versaworks Cut Settings

Hope that helps

Re: Sticker Printing

Hiya, It is possible, just use the perf cut for the A4 border, and a normal cutline where the contours are. You will need to batch your jobs into the sheets in your design software before bringing into VersaWorks. It may be just as easy or quick to cut them by hand though? Bit of a balance between t...
