Hot Tip: How to print irregular shapes on the UV printer
Printing square or rectangular shapes are easy to print on a UV printer, but what do you do when you need to print an irregular shape?
The trick is to turn whatever shape you have into a rectangle! Let's check it out with MFA Photo, Video, and Related Media student, Fernando Sancho.
First prepare a document with the shapes you want printed, and then - on a separate layer - duplicate the shapes with just the outlines. Save both layers as two different .eps files (one with what you want printed and one with just the outlines). Now we're ready to set up the media. On a piece of paper print your outlines. (Make sure not to print your outlines directly on the printing bed itself.)
