    I need some help, I designed a logo for a friend a couple of years back and he wants me to do some vinyl on his truck with the logo. I designed it and it looks like the original but when i go to cut it, the cut lines are all messed up.

    If someone could redo, or tell me what to do,I would really appreciate it.

    PS. Designed in corel and cutting in flexi

    You cannot cut Corel outlines. Use contours to create the same effect. Then weld all objects so that no lines intersect. View you design in wire frame and you can see what your plotter sees.

    From your Effects menue sellect Contours. This creates hard outlines or inlines to what ever object or text is sellected. But with the design you have created you won't need to do that, just create a circle for each line instead of using your outline tool then weld.

    You will need to combine each set of circles before welding. Select the two outer circles then from the Arange menu select Combine. do the same with the two inner circles. Now add the cross bars and weld everything. Let me know if this works.

    Not quite. You can transform Corel outlines into object and cut them willy-nilly.

    Arrange->Convert Outline to Object

    Generally a lot handier than contours
