I thought my craft robo had died just when I had done my first successful print and cut !!(after 5 years). It made a horrible graunchy noise and closed down completely. Turns out it blew a fuse.....thank goodness for that!! :banana:

- I must get mine out again - it hasn't been used for ages!

glad it has 'pulled through' :)

What did you print and cut? I have only done the 'greetings' that I puton the web site ages ago.

I have just about got to grips with judging the thicknesses for some of the card I have and what settings it needed. I started writing a note so I would rememeber but then found that after a few cuts it would need to be slightly thicker. I haven't dried the double cutting yet as apparently that helps. I am using quite thin card at the moment and so still using the blue cap.

I have cut some freebie templates I found and now I must start using the software and making my own. I have also downloaded the Silhouette software which is apparently much better than Robo software. Much easier to do welded words etc. Why are there not enough days to play when I get a new toy!!!

Bet you are relieved JJ! :lol:

I do use mine quite regularly, but am not as adventurous as I'd like to be. I always say I am going to sit down and play at doing new and interesting stuff, but it always ends up that I need something NOW so I just churn out the same stuff! :oops:

What I didn't realise (I may be wrong) is that it will only accept jpegs for print and cut. I have some lovely alpha sets which are png format so I copied some of the letters into paint and saved them as Jpegs. It worked a treat.
