    Hi all a very good friend of mine would like to start making garments and I really need you help in the best software to use and be able to export as an EPS file, we have tried using a free download of Silhouette studio but one its hard to use and time wise very long winded and second I can export out from that to allow me to cut the stencil, please help thanks Rich

    i know near to zilch about Rhinestones etc but always thought they came on pre-laid, spaced designs. like clipart of thats the way to describe it. Harts, Love, Crown, Cat etc kinda thought grafityp sold them too?

    or are you wanting to make your own design Vagazzils?
    if so, do your best to apply dry. 😕

    the Roland R-Wear software is fairly easy from what i have seen and you can export as an eps. file for cutting

    that’s right John, i was wondering where the hell i had saw them used other than at sign uk.

    i can confirm, John Wilson does use them on his Vagazzil. 😳

    joking aside, I’ll send him a message and ask him.

    Hi Rich

    I know your asking about this for someone else but are you aware this can be done in Signlab too (p30 of the signlab user guide for 9.1)

    The best software for creating & producing rhinestone templates is rStones. rStones http://www.rstones.ru/ is a plugin for Coreldraw.

    We have RWear too and it’s vastly over-priced and not a patch on rStones.

    rStones looks good, might have a look into that myself as i normally found that R-Wear just wasn’t upto finishing off the job sometimes

    For me, R-Wear was expensive crap – I was really dismayed that Roland could produce such poor software.

    Just my opinion.

    Hi John my friend has just looked at the rstones site and just loves the look of this, looks easy to create what she needs, the only worry is will it talk to our plotter .

    As it’s a plugin for Coreldraw which uses cutting master 2 to talk to the cutter, I guess your friend could try this out first.
