    Hello,

    We just purchased an FB500 and are going through the lovely learning curve process...machine was only installed a couple of days ago.

    I am curious if someone could walk me through how I would panel a job with overlap/bleed.

    The job is a 60' x 6' wall. We are printing on Alumiunm composite sheets (1/8" thick) and each sheet would be 48" x 72" in size. This would be a cake walk for us on the vinyl/mount to alu panel route but on the flat bed (especially being new to us) is causing a lot of stress/headache!


    Onyx is new to us (we are used to Versa)-any suggestions on how to program onyx and or the machine would be great. I have been trying to play around with overlaps etc but seem to be at a road block. From the threads I read and people I have spoke to, I understand you have to use a negatve start and left margin and a positive right and end margin and it should balance out...but I don't know how to program those margins in..


    Please help!

    Thanks

    I should note that I would expect you would setup a new media size ie: 48x72 borderless media with a and program that actual size to 48.5 x 72.5 and select that when tiling? at least this is what the tech told us to do? From here I would tile, etc then send to the printer but at the printer when I load the media-do I program the media at 48.5" x 72.5" as it would have the bleed or so I program it to the true media size?
