Hey Jean,

I did use a setting close to that as well, but it still create a lot of melting on the edges. Which program did you use with the print software? as Ryan had suggested to me in person, i will try to install the driver on my mac, too. hopefully that way i can get more control.

I always adjusted for vector cutting, speed, power and frequency.

By that I mean, that all settings are reset (speed and power are reset to 50, I assume frequency is set back to 2500 as well). Therefore, I went for printing directly from a pdf, which I had to create in another program.
