Question about picking the right vinyl cutter or plotter for sandcarving.
Hi, I have sandblasted glass before but only 1 dimensional. I would love to sand carve 3d glass and maybe carve stone. First problem…I can not draw to save my soul. Then I found out about the vinyl cutter/plotter, but know NOTHING about them. The last thing I want to do is buy the wrong one or one without all the required accessories. I have a sandblaster as well as a micro sandblaster and a lot of engraving tools (dremal). I guess what I’m asking is what is the best vinyl cutter plotter I could get with out spending a fortune on one that was way over what I needed or way under….What are the features that are a must to have?
Could I run a half pattern through a 24 inch cutter instead of buying a 48 inch one? I sure could use your help…Steve
For the price, I really like the PCUT models. That’s the one I have and talk about in my book.
You could cut half the pattern on one run and the other half on another run.
In fact, I would probably prefer doing this once you start getting into stencils larger than 24 inches. Or at least when you are trying to place the stencil by yourself.
You just have to make sure to align it up accurately which can be hard.
There are other inexpensive ones such as the Seiki vinyl cutter, but I have heard more complaints from that brand.
