Hi All,
 
I'm having problems cutting a very simple popup card with Craft Robo.
 
I've redrawn this http://baudandbui.fr...load/cubino.pdf on Inkscape to be able to print it directly to Craft Robo (PDF attached, SVG doesn't seem to be allowed).
 
I go to the printing setting, thee the blue lines to be "Solid Cut Line" and the red and green lines to be "Dashed Line".
 
These are my printing settings:

printSettings2.png
 
When it starts cutting, the Solid Cut Lines are misaligned on the corners and the Dashed lines are completely misaligned with the Solid Cut Lines!

Please help!!

Looks to me like the dashed lines are offset as they are out by the same amount everywhere.  I'm not near my Robo to be able to look for where that is set I'm afraid, but if you look in the help file for Offset you should be able to change this back to zero

Hi Bigbunniesuk,

 

If you could help me, it would be great! I can't find any offset settings on the craftrobo prinitng driver. I searched the help file, but it only talks about offsetting shapes in CraftRobo's design software. Can you check your Robo and let me know how to do it? Please? :)
