Cutting inefficient

Roland SPI-300i

When I cut it skips a part then comes back to it what wastes time, is there a way to make it not skip lines?

The cutting is likely working, check the following -

1. The blade - Is the blade sharp to a point and has no damage
2. The cutting strip - Is there any grooves or damage to this
3. The blade holder - try lubricating the bearings in the blade holder

All these checking points may help with getting a better cut, also try turning down the speed.

The cut is fine, but lets say it cuts 2 objects, it makes object A 50% and jumps to object B, after that it comes back to object A and finishes the other 50%

Okay, the cutting order is defined by the software you are using to design with. Some design programs are better at minimal movement that others, it is dependent on the way the shapes are drawn.
