Not much I can really say just yet about this thing, since it hasn't even been shipped yet, but. I've come up with a few things to try when it arrives, after testing out the software, and learning what formats work with it.




Nothing too special here. just going to recreate my favorite coffee cup.



This was dumped from Batman: Arkham Asylum. converted to vectors nicely. I think this would make an awesome T-shirt.


I'll be able to share more once the machine actually arrives. Kinda excited to try it out!

So what can be superior when compared with paying out half the price for brand name children?

wow, if brand name children are on sale, maybe i can stop buying all these cheap knockoff children

OK... even I'll admit that the Oakland Raiders' performance might be a valid reason to use the interesting words.

Actually, apparently it can cut balsa wood, up to 3mm thick... not sure if I'll ever attempt that though.


This aside: the unit actually arrived today.

First attempt at this. All things considered, I think it came out well! ^_^</div>

That is awesome indeed! The Mario Tech Support mug is a great idea, and I can't wait to see what you do next.
Course clear! You got a card.

Running them through the dishwasher and microwave mainly.
Which BTW, they passed.

I've also gone off label and pressed the mugs in this heat press I have at 110c. This confirmed to set the adhesive much harder, preventing the decals from coming off in the dishwasher.

I still won't go saying that they are dishwasher safe, just to cover my own ass, but on the event one does get run through the dishwasher, it's likely to survive.

A rather interesting update:
Since getting this machine, I have actually sold 6 coffee mugs IRL, and 3 online. Not counting my personal mug, and ones made for my mom, brother, and sister.

It's hard to believe how much use I've gotten out of this thing already.

And of course, I've been having some other fun with it as well.
