Hello idslamyou!

Unfortunately, we can't promise to add this in the nearest future. But we have this feature in our plan.

Exporting as a vector is rife with problems, I know what you are say as we are in the same boat but I doubt if the alt team can spend time on trying to get it to create vectors when probably in the end the detail in them wont be sufficient for some of the crap, customers upload for their images. I mean even adobe Illustrator and other fine graphics programmes cant create decent cuttable/scaleable vectors from most customers artwork and fear that the alt team would be creating a unusable addon instead of adding value to other areas.

I know what your saying as we get all kinds of "autotraced" garbage files. I'm not interested in vectors for uploaded artwork though. I only need vector file for the text decals, which will not contain any raster/bitmap images. I don't allow image uploads for die cut vinyl. I want the customer to create there own die cut decal using only text.

Hello!

Yes, Product designer works fine with 4.1.4. If you install and notice any bugs, please let us know it, we will figure everything out. We just don't recommend you to use the responsive skin in CS-Cart 4.1.4 because it's in beta version and not recommended for production yet. There can be some issues if you enable the responsive skin and the Product designer.

Hello,

I did a test order on my site before launch and when i went to the order details > product designer tab, the loading bar loaded but the product designer never opened up. See image for further explanation.
This is pretty important to have since we are a screen printing business, so we need to see the art supplied to print the product lol :)

Thanks

Hello!

Alt-team ,

I downloaded your trial add on and I like it very much. Just a couple questions....
1.When I would generate a print image, what exactly gets generated? I would assume the canvas and what ever the customer added to it. I am not able to generate this with the free mode.
2.Is it possible to not use a canvas? I had tried to make a rectangle with a line width of "0" so that it was invisible and saved it as a .swf although this works in my Corel Draw, it did not work with your add on. I have a ready made plaque as the product and I want the customer to only apply text to this. I will engrave the text. If I made my line color "white" this would engrave into the product.

Hello jimmyod!

1.When I would generate a print image, what exactly gets generated? I would assume the canvas and what ever the customer added to it. I am not able to generate this with the free mode.


1. You can generate .png or .pdf image. The canvas frame is not generated, only design elements. Also, there is a setting to Include product side image, it this case the image of your product with design elements is generated (good for greeting cards, calendars, etc.)

You can read more information here http://www.alt-team....able-image.html

2.Is it possible to not use a canvas? I had tried to make a rectangle with a line width of "0" so that it was invisible and saved it as a .swf although this works in my Corel Draw, it did not work with your add on. I have a ready made plaque as the product and I want the customer to only apply text to this. I will engrave the text. If I made my line color "white" this would engrave into the product.


2. It is important to add a canvas but you can make it absolutely invisible for customers. Please, read the information here http://www.alt-team....#How_add_canvas There is an Edit icon on top right of a canvas frame, click it and set the border alpha to zero.

If you have more questions or something is still not clear, please ask!

Thanks for your quick response. I will take a look at your suggestions. Sounds like you thought of it all.
Thanks,
Jim.

Very nice, I understand now.
The ratio was throwing me too, but I have that under control as well.
Is it possible to have temporary access to generate a print image so that I can see how well this works or prints for me?
Thanks again.

Has anyone managed to get the pdfs into adobe illustrator or corel draw and be used as vectors for print and cut?

I think that whether or not this can be done depends on whether the initial rendering was done using a vector or raster based program and also how it was saved.

I use to use a program called Vector Magic that can convert a raster image to a vector image.
Obviously not as good as direct vector but did the job. More simple the image the better the result.

Thanks, yeah, we use Vectormagic all the time but As the product designer generates .pdfs, I was wondering how it creates them. If I could bring vectors straight into my rip software it would save me tons of time.
We process loads of clothing print orders a day and saving 5 minutes per order=many man hours.
