    hi all! i was just wondering how you guys apply post heat to the last part of your prints. since the vinyl would stop moving forward once the print stops, how do you get the last part [1 ft or so] to move through the length of the dryer?

    i have a separate dryer from benes for my SC-540, and it makes it even more difficult since it's positioned outside of the printer.

    thanks in advance for any inputs!

    Can you tape on a foot of scrap material so the heater thinks the print is longer?

    ahh. the problem isn't about the media running out. it's about the print stopping, and not automatically pushing paper out in a consistent and regular interval anymore.


    this is exactly what i've been doing so far. but i'm a bit worried on how under-heating/ over-heating would affect my prints. that's why i'm trying to see if you guys have been able to find a more consistent way of heating it up.

    i do some print-contour cutting, and i'm worried that the more heated areas might shift more than others.

    thanks for the replies.

    Our VersaCamm has a setting to adjust how much is fed out after, though the default works well.
