Re: Looking for a new machine...

Hi Andy,

Perhaps we can do a sample for you. That way we can time how long it takes and you can review the quality. If you want us to have a go, please send us some test material and we will speak to Vectric/Delcam about getting a sample image file.

Re: Looking for a new machine...

Hi Andy, Your work is very impressive, and it is always flattering when true craftsmen consider our machines. Kai is right, when the camera draws back you can see the spindle and spindle motor are original. The video shows that the cutter is held by a bottom-loading collet, this reduces the risk of ...

Re: MDX 40A - depth help

You should be able to just about squeeze it. The Z travel of the MDX40A is 105mm, but there is a little more clearance from the table. So, as long as you are not mounting your material on anything too thick, and your material is not much more than 55mm, you should be able to get the tool to move unh...

Re: Metaza Software problems

Hi Yorkie Thank you for purchasing the MPX90. How are you making your material? I have just created a 10mm x 15mm black rectangle in CorelDRAW X5. I exported it as a jpg and then added the material in Metaza Studio. Once the file is selected, you are prompted to set te material size. You can keep th...

Football Crazy?

Many people claim they will be a fan of their football club 'until the day they die.' But why stop there? We have been supplying the funeral industry with engraving machines for years and watched with interest the rise in popularity of wrapped coffins. Here is a shop window display for Exmouth's Co-...

Re: Buildplatform usage

Hi skroon An old tip from my engraving days was to stick the tape to the machine table and then continually press the heel of your hand onto the tape. This would transfer some of the oils from your skin, therefore, reducing the adhesive quality of the tape. You may also want to try the adhesive mats...

Re: iModela replacement parts?

Hi guys One of the benefits of having man-flu is the inability to sleep, and therefore, more time to look at things like the forum. I feel I must jump in here about the discussion over pricing of parts. Firstly, I must point out that the iModela will be the least profitable product Roland has ever p...
