    I have a Graphtec CE-3000-60 cutter and ProDesign software that I use to make RC car masks for myself and my friends. I believe ProDesign is someone's in house version of Flexi.

    Here's what I did:

    Grabbed a flame from my Mr Clip Art disc, sized it
    and inlined it to make a thin border around the outside

    Here's what happens:

    Blade makes one pass over the inline - so far, so good

    Then it makes 2 passes over the outside border of the flame. During the second pass, it pulls up the edge and makes a mess.

    I have it set to 1 pass in the production manager.

    If I don't inline the flame, it will only make a single pass so it seems like it has something to do with the inline.

    I contacted the vender but he is unable to help. What am I doing wrong? Thank You.

    The stock clipart might have an extra stroke that you cant see. Some of that stuff is pretty sloppy.

    Maybe, but before I inline it, the blade only makes one pass.

    Double, no triple check that you have removed any strokes on the image. I know that in flexi sometimes it will add a stroke, for some unknown reason. Even though you might not be able to see the stroke on your screen, the cutter is only doing what you are telling it what to do.

    Seperate combine, select and delete one of the inlines, then re combine.

    Should fix error.

    Cheers - G
